Location: Stadsskogen, Sweden
Size: 1 bedroom apartment
Just 23 years old, Krabbe's sun dappled apartment is an idealized IKEA catalog page come to life. Lacquered white throughout, with touches of warm wood, leather, and a few thoughtfully placed plants, the small Swedish contemporary apartment is also packed to the brim with some fine home entertainment options, making it obvious Krabbe takes his A/V equipment as seriously as his home decor...
Unplggd Tour Survey:
Tech style: Swedish Modern
Here's Krabbe's previous apartment, with many of the same furnishings, decorative elements, and electronic components in his current space. It appears he traded up for more windows at the expense of wall space, thus losing the option to wall mount his 52" flat panel.
The coffee table hides away a wireless keyboard, mouse, and remote control, alongside a set of coasters...just in case guests drop by.
