Abstract

The tiled stove has served as a heating source for numerous generations of Swedes, and today their presence still remains a natural component in many interiors. These stoves are of a distinctive Swedish type that emerged in the mid-l8th century. By examing the earlier history of the tiled stove, stylistic changes and technical development, I will try to establish how this Swedish type developed. I will also focus on the role of the tiled stove as a determining factor in the Swedish interior. Comparisons with stoves from Germany will show how the foreign influences were adapted to better suit the Swedish taste. This proposed exhibition takes place at Sturehov Castle outside Stockholm, and the highlights of the exhibit will be the remarkable collection of tiled stoves. This location also gives an excellent opportunity to examine the interplay between stove and interior.
