Dutchman Sune Stomps travels through the northern part of Sweden looking for fine antique country furniture. In the workshop of his company in Lyrestad he removes old paint down to the original patina; farm red to green oxidized gray. Just as long as the soul of old valve banks, clocks, chairs and cabinets are exposed again. This way Sune discovers interior colours, which have been used for generations. Ocher yellow, olive green and light ‘Swedish Blue’ alternate. Each piece of furniture is subjected to Sune ‘s critical eye. It is difficult to find the same shabby shade collections in new paints. Sune found a good recipe: he solves some of the original paint by washing the chair carefully. The pigments he catches in a small amount of water and he uses them to colour bare areas.
