Sweden is famous for its art glass from the houses of Kosta, Boda and Orrefors. The area of Sweden where these art glass factories are is Smaland, which is also where Pippi Longstocking is from. In that area there are many different glass factories. This is the region for it. So now Kosta Boda has opened Kosta Boda Art Hotel in the area and I don’t kow about you but I’m thinking about my next trip to Sweden. About 7 years ago I had the opportunity to tour the hot shop of Kosta and meet one of their artists, Ole Brossen. At Boda I was able to meet Kjell Engman.
Looking through the web site for the hotel you can see the artists from Kosta Boda that were involved with the design of the hotel. I think you’re going to want to go to!
