Lena Larsson Rocking Chairs

Lena Larsson was a Swedish interior designer, known as a pioneer for the unconventional, family-friendly environments she created and for the 1960s modern wear-and-tear ideal. She was married in 1940 to architect Mårten Larsson, and they had four children. Larsson was a member of the Rabenius family belonging to the Swedish nobility.
