Swedish design showcased

By Katherine Boyle

While the European Fashion Weeks rage on, Washington embassies are playing host to a number of fashionable events. Proving there's more to Swedish design than ubiquitous IKEA, the House of Sweden at the Embassy of Sweden launched their anticipated art and design exhibition "Fabric of Life," which displays the wares of 17 up-and-coming female designers, all of whom have showcased their designs at renowned Gallery Pascale in Stockholm. The exhibition features clothing, furniture, textiles and house wares all made from sustainable materials. International furniture designer Monica Förster showcases her minimalist red "Spoon" chairs while designers Lena Bergström and Ulrika Mårtensson are among the textile designers featured. The exhibition opened to the public on Saturday, February 26 and goes through March 20, 2011.
