THE SCOUT

A Swede deal

July 19, 2007|David A. Keeps | Times Staff Writer

Revered for his whimsical decoration and imitated by Jonathan Adler and other contemporary designers, Stig Lindberg (1916-1982) is a household name again. For three decades, Lindberg served as artistic director of Gustavsberg, arguably Sweden's most prestigious producer of tableware. Now, two of his textile patterns, "Garden of Eden," shown here, and "Pottery" have been reissued as table runners and pillow covers by Design House Stockholm. At Yolk in Silver Lake, "head huevo" Maria Neuman has paired the Lindberg runners ($59) with stoneware pieces from Hoganas, which she calls "the Swedish version of Heath Ceramics." 1626 Silver Lake Blvd.; (323) 660-4315.
