Old School Finnish Design


Scandinavia is famous for its modern design, but Finnish magazine Muoto is getting acquianted with a much older type of Finnish style: the turn of the (nineteenth) century wooden house. Muoto has an article about rennovating but retaining the style of a century old Finnish wooden house. In a country where the old is often thrown out for the new, it's refreshing and exciting to read the story of Kim Weckström, who has bought and maintained the style of Villa Heikel, including its original windows and their frames. Unfortunately, the only pic you'll get of the job is right here--you'll have to buy the magazine to see how the rest of it turned out.
