Good news for Scandi remodelers: Swoon, a new line of bathroom furniture, is devoted to offering clean-lined basics with pick-and-choose components. The Stockholm-based company enlisted designer Fredrik Wallner to create three collections, each comprised of a sink vanity, mirrored medicine cabinet, and  tall standing cabinet.  Each of these ensembles—the Side, Square, and Soft collections—come with a choice of colors, knobs, handles, legs, and faucets for custom tailoring. Swoon has transparent manufacturing (mostly carried out in Sweden and Finland, and all of it is manufactured within Europe) and ships its products to locations across Scandinavia; the company offers its products online and plans to expand its reach across Europe soon. The whole concept—good design, simple customization, and local manufacturing—is something we hope to see make its way stateside. Styling by  Lotta Agaton  and photography by  Kristofer Johnsson  for Swoon .  Above: Swoon offers three different bathroom collections that each include a sink vanity, mirrored cabinet, and a tall, narrow standing cabinet. The  Square  design, shown here, combines modern shapes with neo-rustic cabinet fronts and wooden legs. Above: The Square sink vanity has two pull-out, soft-closing drawers built from  Hettich  technology. Above: A look inside the tall cabinet reveals a metal laundry hamper; it's one of the features available in each collection. Above: The  Side  collection is characterized by straight silhouettes, polished porcelain counters, and metal legs. The Side sink vanity is shown here in a deep rose, one of five color options (which include the warm gray on the plank leaning against the wall). Above: The vanity's countertop and wash basin are both porcelain from Portuguese company Sanindusa. The faucets are from Swedish company Tapwell and are available in white, black, and chrome. Cabinet knobs, one of the customizable features, are shown here in lacquered wood. Above: The sink vanity in the Side collection has an upper compartment that hinges open for storing lipstick, nail polish, and small accessories. The lower compartment is a retractable, soft- closing drawer for holding larger items. Above: Furniture in the Soft series has rounded fronts and angled legs of solid ash. Above: A look inside a wall-mounted mirrored cabinet (the interiors of the cabinets are the same across each style). The cabinet is equipped with an outlet and an LED light that simulates daylight for makeup application. Above: Scaled-down versions of all of Swoon's designs are presented in the  Single series, sized for powder rooms and compact urban spaces.  Above: Perfect for tiny bathrooms, the Single Vanity is just 250 millimeters (about 10 inches) deep, and 700 millimeters (27.5 inches) tall.
