People with Passion for Britain: Simon & Tomas

Interior designers Tomas Cederlund and Simon Davies are known to a wider Swedish audience through their participation in various Swedish TV shows.

We are pleased that they wanted to sign off our new online video project: People With Passion for Britain.

In this clip they discuss the difference between Swedish and British design and also give a couple of tips where to go and what to do in the UK. They claim that Swedes lack personality in their homes and that our perception of UK design is extremely narrow.
