Chairs

Amy Wikman is a longtime interior designer. Tomas Wikman is a Swedish-trained engineer who can build anything. In 2004, the husband-wife team combined their yin-yang talents and created Atlanta-based Bjork Studio.

When the small company started, it imported antique and vintage furniture from Scandinavia. It still does.

But a few years ago, Bjork Studio changed its focus. Now it offers a collection of new, clean-lined furniture and upholstery made solely in Atlanta.

The upholstery collection is painstakingly bench-made with kiln-dried hardwood frames, eight-way hand-tied spring construction, hand-rubbed finishes and as many organic materials as possible.

Sofas and sectionals are favorites. But so are ottomans, dining chairs, banquettes and counter stools, like the Louise, pictured below.

For the right room, the curvaceous Gudinna wing chair makes a statement. In Swedish, Gudinna (pictured above) means goddess.

Prices range from $200 to $300 for an ottoman to $3,000 and up for custom sofas and sectionals. The five-foot-tall Gudinna wing chair retails for $2,985.

Find Bjork Studio-made sofas, chairs, ottomans and other pieces at Atlanta MADE. 1187 Howell Mill Road (atlantamade.us) or on facebook.
