Featured Supplier: Smedbo 1967 The forgotten room The bathroom of the 1960´s reflected the austere times of the decades before. Fashion had yet to dictate that a bathroom should be any more than basic and simple. As a result bathrooms were stark and dull, easy to care for but with little attention paid to aesthetics and style – a forgotten room. In 1967 Smedbo was incorporated. The new company was founded on the traditional principles of craftsmanship of the highest level. Beautifully forged items were produced and in that first year Smedbo unveiled the first bathroom accessories (Herrgård), in a period when people were beginning to realize that a bathroom could be stylish and modern. Smedbo’s new line of decorative hardware in solid brass featuring fine detail captured the market’s imagination and helped to ensure that the bathroom would no longer be the most neglected room in the home. With this new range classic Scandinavian design values, the tradition of craftsmanship and the beauty of brass united. The new bathroom range from Smedbo enjoyed great success amongst the Swedish house holds. The ‘forgotten’ room would be forgotten no more.
