My oldest friend lives in the center of Malmö, in a remodeled loft furnished with midcentury finds and vintage rugs from Turkey and Morocco. It's one of my favorite places, for reasons having nothing to do with the design. During a raucous dinner party a few years ago, I went into labor with my first-born. So of course I have a natural affection for the loft, which took a year and a half to renovate and features touches like Dinesen wide-plank floors and a kitchen from Uniform. My friend, a yoga instructor, and her husband, a consultant, are a well-traveled couple who explored the world before settling in Malmö, Sweden, and they've infused their home with a mix of exotic finds and Scandinavian classics. To see more of the space, go to Bo-laget . Above: My friends collect mid-century Scandinavian furniture and vintage rugs from Morocco and Turkey.
