The ornamental sculptor Axel Notini’s apartment in Stockholm is a fine example of a wealthy middle-class home at the end of the 19th century.
Axel Notini was one of the foremost stucco craftsmen in Stockholm during the latter part of the 19th century. The house that he built for himself is richly decorated with ornamental plasterwork both inside and out. He used to invite prospective customers to visit him at home so that he could show off his skills.
The plasterwork has been restored to its original condition and his dwelling has been furnished in a style typical of his class at the time. Visitors can see what a drawing room, gentleman’s study and master bedroom might look like in an upper-middle class apartment.
Guided tours can be booked all year.
