ABOUT CHRISTINE INGRIDSDOTTER
With a background in Swedish fashion working with the most talented in the industry, Christine Ingridsdotter founded the first international showroom in the world dedicated to Swedish lifestyle brands, called 0046, located at 217 rue St Honoré in Paris.
During the last twelve years she has been committed to the interior design industry in Sweden, supporting them on the international market. She has been responsible for the color schemes and textiles of a number of famous restaurants in Stockholm created by the awarded interior architect Jonas Bohlin, such as AG, Luzette, Stockholm Town Hall restaurant, Taverna Brillo, Teatergrillen, Riche, The Hills, Aira and the new iconic Sturehof.
She has been surrounded for years by the pieces she now stars to produce.
In 2021 she founded the brand Ingridsdotter.
“I wanted to name this brand after my mother Ingrid. She was an idealist, and I was raised to become one. Strongly influenced by her relation to nature sharing her respect for everything living. Her impact made me become dedicated to sustainability. Always caring for the environment and fight for injustices but also for being careful of what you have and understand your responsibility that comes with awareness.
Perhaps it is my upbringing in the Swedish forest, playing among the wild, ancient trees that made me understand the silent, voiceless poetry in true beauty and admire that everything has a function in nature. Nothing exists without a purpose. I want the material, always traceable, to be treated with respect and the people making the pieces to get the recognition they deserve. I want each fiber and flake to hold through better and worse and the object to be so dearly loved that the owner never wants to let it go.” Christine Ingridsdotter.
