60’s café still in function – Konditori Valand, Stockholm

Believe it or not (but it´s all true), this café was designed in 1954 and the interior is still intact and the café is still in function. The owner Stellan Åström designed this café in 1954 and his wife Magdalena was an employee at the time of the opening, and they are still going strong with some help from one of their sons and his wife. Magdalena, now 83, bakes the cookies and her husband Stellan, now 91, keeps the economy in check. The atmosphere is naturally creative and calm and no bather with trends, you don´t get a latte or cappuccino here but just brewed coffee and home-made cookies.

It´s an inspiring interior and I like the warmth it radiates and that they haven´t followed the trends but stayed true to their original idea, which is still going strong 60 years later.
