Style Secret: Mora Clocks
No single piece instantly conveys Swedish style as well as the Mora clock. These charmers have a fanciful backstory: During a tough 18th-century period in the Swedish farm town of Mora, the story goes, the farmers turned their attention from crops to clockmaking in order to scratch out a living. Although their production dropped off as the 19th century waned, they're still ticking away at the heart of Swedish style.
How Swede it is: Mora clocks are as individual as rooms themselves — some are plain, some carved, some painted. Look for them at antiques shops and markets that specialize in Scandinavian goods, or you can even have one custom crafted with the embellishments you'd like.
