Ingridsdotter's first collection includes iconic furniture designed by one of Sweden's most famous and influential interior architects and designers, Jonas Bohlin. The objects were created for interiors belonging to Stockholm's high-profile restaurant scene, such as Riche, Sturehof, Teatergrillen, Restaurant of the City Hall, Taverna Brillo, The Hills and Aira. The collection also includes objects from the monumental exhibition LIV, an all-encompassing work of art by Bohlin, as well as a unique series of cabinets.
Being able to produce and present a treasure trove of designs from one of our era's foremost designers is both a great asset and a responsibility to create opportunities for more people to access these unique objects.
Our commitment to excellence is unwavering, and we will continue to add more exceptional pieces to the collection, sourced from an exclusive archive and newly designed pieces.

In 2021, during the pandemic, Christine launched her own eponymous brand, Ingridsdotter.

Ingrid, an idealistic and nature-loving woman, instilled in her daughter a deep commitment to sustainability and social justice.
"Perhaps it is my upbringing in the Swedish forest, 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.
