We are pleased to welcome you to the Stockholm Furniture Fair. As the world’s largest platform for Scandinavian design, we attract professional visitors from over 100 countries, making the fair an attractive playground for exhibitors.

In 2023 we have more than 400 exhibitors from 31 countries booked for the fair, and we expect 30.000 international visitors. These are some of our fair highlights for 2023.

In February their Guest of Honour installation will set the tone for the 71st edition of the Stockholm Furniture Fair.

Älvsjö Gård

Älvsjö Gård is a new platform for experimental, research-driven and collectible design, set in a building right next to the fair. Amongst the 2023 exhibitors is Tableu from Denmark, Pyton Gallery and Kiosken from Norway and a curated SFF space showcasing a selection of Swedish artists and designers. Dating back to the 16th century, Älvsjö gård is one of Stockholm’s oldest still-existing manors. The number of visitors is therefore regulated and there is no wheelchair access.

The bar Underbar

The designer and interior architect Jonas Bohlin – behind many of Sweden's most iconic restaurants and bars over the last 30 years – has designed the bar Underbar in Hall B in close collaboration with Christine Ingridsdotter. The bar is made from carefully selected materials which will be reused after the fair, and the furniture and new lighting showcased and used in the bar will continue to other restaurants after the fair has ended. Jonas Bohlin is one of Sweden's most highly regarded designers. Ingridsdotter produces much of his work, made in Sweden only.

Stockholm Furniture Fair offers a dedicated program with keynote speakers and inspiring design and architecture talks throughout the week. Among the speakers on the main stage in Victoria Hall you will find designers such as Sabine Marcelis, Stephen Burks and Raw Edges as well as architects such Anders Lendager, Victoria Millestrup from BIG, and Ukrainian architect Slava Balbek, who is behind a number of volunteer initiatives in his country.

The Nude Edition is a new exhibition area with pre-built stands made of recycled material. The stands are small, measuring only 15 square meters, and the material will return to be recycled after use.
