The accompanying text provides a fascinating insight into each home, describing its design, planning and evolution.

Born in Sweden, Magnus used to live in Stockholm, where he owned a men's fashion store. Since opening the first Skandium store in London in 1999, he has played an instrumental role in creating a renewed international interest in Scandinavian design.
