Häringe Castle nestles by Landfjärden Bay. It had stood there for 272 years when Torsten Kreuger purchased it in 1929. Torsten was a man with little understanding of historically listed buildings and a keen interest for new fashions. He quickly installed a fridge in the kitchen, a skittle alley in one of the wings and Sweden’s first outdoor swimming pool in the castle gardens. Over time, the castle became a jet-set haunt where one could see both Josephine Baker and Greta Garbo. Decadent? Perhaps a bit. Fashionable? To some extent. If you were to design a piece of furniture according to the same principles, you could base it on solid traditions with precise, balanced lines. To the classic, original design you might add a decadent playfulness and a very relaxed way of relating to luxury. This was what we did when we developed the range of dining furniture we call Häringe. Greta Garbo would have been the perfect accessory. But it works with any mysterious beauty in dark sunglasses.

OUR SELECTION OF MATERIALS AND THE ENVIRONMENT
All our oak, teak, ash, linen, leather and glass is selected from a long-term perspective of sustainability. Our teak comes from carefully selected approved plantations with the highest available quality. The oak comes from wood suppliers who take great responsibility for the environment in all stages of production. Our linen comes from well-known Romo and our outdoor fabrics are from Sunbrella and Ferrari, both leading companies in the development of weather-resistant fabrics.
Wood is a material that needs to be looked after well. By caring for your furniture properly, you can increase its lifespan and keep it beautiful. One simple way to do this is by wiping it with a damp cloth, so that pollen, bird droppings and other types of dirt do not gain a foothold.
Our oiled oak furniture is finished with quality oil. Maintenance needs are determined by how much the furniture is exposed to the sun, water and general use. However, a rule of thumb is that you should oil your furniture twice a year. Over time, small cracks will form in the wood; this is entirely normal and gives what is known as patina. If you prefer, you can choose not to oil your furniture. It will then develop a lovely grey hue, but will be less resistant to the elements.
Painted surfaces can usually go three to four seasons outdoors without a great deal of maintenance. However, if paint gets chipped or becomes worn, you need to repair it immediately.
We recommend that you allow your teak furniture to age naturally and that you simply clean it thoroughly once or twice a year. If you want to retain the golden-brown colour of new teak you will commit to a regular maintenance program. If the furniture is left to age naturally outside by being exposed to light, air and rain, then the surface of the teak will gradually change to beautiful soft, silver-grey.
