When we first discovered  Kinfolk , founders Nathan Williamson and Katie were living in Portland, OR, and their upstart mag had a distinctly Pacific Northwest vibe. The Kinfolk brand has evolved since then, and Nathan and Katie are now based in Copenhagen and their geographic horizons have expanded considerably. Their recently published tome, Kinfolk: Interiors for Slow Living, reflects their new internationalism, with 35 houses from the US, Scandinavia, Japan, and beyond. One of our favorites is the Stockholm house of stylist Joanna Laven and programmer David Wahlgren, both devotees of vintage midcentury furniture and low-key, relaxed decor.  Photos are excerpted from The Kinfolk Home by Nathan Williams (Artisan Books). Photographs by Kristofer Johnsson copyright 2015. Above: A 1960s Venini light fixture illuminates the living room; the painting is by Albert Johansson, a Swedish minimalist painter. The floors are parquet. Above: Pale grays, in tune with the Scandinavian light, predominate.  Above L: A Sunburst Clock by George Nelson. Above R: Joanna and David with their two children. Above: In the kitchen, a midcentury dining table and chairs contrast with the formality of the cabinetry. Above: A sconce by Jielde; Joanna bought the Lennart Sand painting at auction and had it reframed. Above: Kinfolk at Home is $31.50 from Amazon. Photo via Kinfolk's Instagram feed.
