The Dining Room
Welcome to The Hallwyl Museum in Stockholm, Sweden.
Walther and Wilhelmina took their daily meals in The Dining Room as well as when entertaining. They were often three at the table, as the lady’s companion Ida Uhse dined with them. On festive occasions the table would be set for more people. The table could be extended and seat about 30 guests.
The reception rooms are all decorated in the historicist manner, meaning that the rooms are inspired by different historical periods. The Dining Room is decorated in the Baroque style. It is a somber style suitable for formal dinners.
The walls are panelled in oak with details of black bog oak.
The room was designed by the architect Ragnar Östberg.
