Lundby has been a world leader in contemporary doll houses and furniture since 1945 when their first dollhouse was created by Axel and Grete Thomson
The love for contemporary design and what the toys will look like through the eyes of a child when he or she creates a world of their own has always been the core of the Lundby business
The story of Lundby doll’s house begins in 1945, when Axel and Grete Thomsen moved home to Sweden from Denmark and settled down in Lundby in the northern part of Gothenburg. Grete designed and built a doll’s house and furniture for her niece, which were so beloved by the niece and her friends that the couple decided to make dollhouses their business.
Two years later Ferd Lundqvist & Co., (nowadays NK department store) placed the first order, and the money from that first order paid for new tools, so Grete and Axel could create their first, homemade doll’s house collection. Lundby’s first doll’s house factory opened the following year.
The Lundby collection features two different types of doll’s houses, classic Småland and modern Stockholm. The Lundby website offers plenty of ideas for decorating and enjoying the houses as well as a magazine with activities and crafts to feature in your ‘home’. Take a look – and if you don’t speak Swedish, don’t worry. A picture speaks a thousand words!
