Stockholm design

From the architects of Tham & Videgård Hansson... a design masterpiece. In an effort to link the various large rooms in this 10-room, 19th century Stockholm apartment together, they decided to use 7,000 oversized wooden floorboards stained different colours (see the floorplan below). To contrast with the bold flooring they brought in exclusively all-white, Swedish furniture. I can appreciate the design in terms of art and minimalism but I can't exactly call it a personal favorite.
