Scandinavian simplicity in Gothenburg

Gothenburg, Sweden

When Martin and My Ringqvist moved from sunny Santa Monica to gorgeous Gothenburg, they opted for a classic downtown flat from 1888. Behind the interior lies a promise they made to each other 18 years ago - always buy timeless items.

Meet the family

18 years ago, when Martin and My decided to live together, they also decided not to buy a single item unless they thought they would keep it for the rest of their lives. For five years, the TV was placed on a paper box and it took them another five to find the table to put the remote on. And they still stay true to this idea of not buying unless it is the right piece. Martin is Creative Director at Forsman & Bodenfors and My is a teacher and currently working as Project Manager for the City of Gothenburg. Together with their two kids Nova and Nanok they inhabit the 156m2 Gothenburg home.
