Cecilia Nyberg, Project Area Manager of Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, said, “We’re delighted with all the praise for this year’s fair and that we’ve advanced our position in the international arena as the world’s largest meeting place for Scandinavian design. The fact that the Fair is attracting an increasing number of strong brands is further evidence of this.”
