Harriet Ljung’s chamber

(Room S1)
 

En-suite double room with shower. The bathroom has white marble walls, and slate floor with under-floor heating. The bedroom has an original tiled stove from the 1770s.

The room is named after gallery owner Harriet Ljung, who for many years run the Engelbrekt Art Gallery in Örebro, and later, the Dr Glas Art Gallery in Kungsträdgården, Stockholm. For 10 years, Harriet Ljung curated the summer exhibitions at Grythyttan Old Inn. Much of the modern art on the ground floor at Saxå Manor was acquired by Carl Jan Granqvist in happy partnership with Harriet Ljung.

With its clay-plastered walls where remnants of old frescos can be made out here and there, the room radiates a provincial version of the French Empire aesthetics typical for eastern Värmland. The room still has its original ceiling and soap-scoured floorboards. The tiled stove has a rokoko design in delft blue on white, and the two doors date from early 18th century. A four-poster bed, a wardrobe in mahogany imitation, a chest of drawers and a buffet table are all provincial works from the 1820s. The room is also furnished with two Gripsholm armchairs with cut ornaments in rococo style dating from the 1780s, and two rococo-style chairs.

Marie-Louise Kjellberg’s chamber

(Room S2)

 
En-suite twin room with shower. This room got its name from an often-seen hostess at Saxå Manor, Marie-Louise Kjellberg, former owner of hotels Linné and Geijer in Uppsala, and coach for young entrepreneurs within the service industry. Marie-Louise Kjellberg is related to the Berggren family of Saxå Manor, and has donated a few pieces of furniture from her family home, as well as two portraits, that now hang upstairs in the manor, in the great pink hall. The portraits were made by history painter and professor Petter (Per) Berggren (1792-1848), a nephew of the builder of Saxå Manor: Johan Berggren.

The room has soap-scoured floorboards, green panelling and yellow wall fields. The window and bed curtains are made of white, Swiss batiste. An imposing Swedish Empire-style bed, an English serving table, a beautiful dressing table, a confortable crapaud chair from 1880s and a secretary desk embellish the room. All furniture in the room are made of mahogany. Amongst other things, the art consists of a piece of silk embroidery from early 19th century and a petit point work of a romantic couple. There is an additional bed in the room.

The bedroom has a masculine appearance and a hunting theme, where some of the furniture have been constructed using antlers from fallow deer. There is also a baroque cabinet from early 18th century, a sofa in provincial rococo and two armchairs in black and gold. A stuffed black grouse makes sure everything is in proper order.

The room has a number of diplomas and certificates of education from the US that belonged to Carl Jan Granqvist’s maternal grandfather, Gustaf Ahlqvist, who for many years run the Swedish Health Centre in Allentown, Pennsylvania. An extra bed is permanently made up and ready to use.
