    Karin and Carl Larsson’s Dalarna home figured in the launch of a new, national ideal of interior decoration. Rejecting mass production, they mixed older vernacular and upper-class furniture with textiles and chairs of their own design. This was a home created by both husband and wife, but in Carl’s work Karin’s artistry disappears. She is presented as the homemaker, the “eternally feminine” according to the contemporary norm.
