Nils Dahlin (1731-1787) Sweden

Nils Dahlin was a Swedish furniture designer and among the most skilled and best-known carpenters of the Gustavian and Rococo periods. He did regular interior design work at the Royal Palace and Drottningholm Palace. His most famous work is a pair of Chinese lacquered pieces, which he made for Queen Lovisa Ulrika in 1771. One of these bureaus was the most expensive piece of furniture ever sold at auction in Sweden. Dahlin’s furniture pieces are steeped in high class and influenced by the French Rococo period. Dahlin’s works can be found at Nationalmuseum and Nordiska Museet.
