Open the doors to Alexandra. You are greeted by the aroma of
opulent French Diptyque candles and music of Edith Piaf, one of
France’s most beloved singers “La Mome Piaf”. The Scandinavian
spirit of simplicity is obvious. White and blue hued Gustavian
furniture, in Baroque and Rococo periods mixed with Louis XV
down-filled French bergères, upholstered in simple linens, and rich
patinated Italian and Spanish tables and consoles have each found
their perfect spots, when a French side table is flanked by two
eighteenth-century, delicately hoofed Swedish Barrel-style side chairs.
You linger further and you see Louis XVI period buffet á deux corps
filled with gilded wooden and zing objects, a collection of
apothecary jars with red tops and magnificent pieces of red and
white corals and sea urchins. Look up and you will see a palatial
eighteenth-century gilded wooden chandelier hangs over a marble top table where flocks of cement birds, medicine vases in cast iron,
dried butterflies and volumes with pages from a splendid still life
...the unique charm is evident!
