Two of the foremost furniture design companies in Scandinavia, Bruno Mathsson and Källemo, are based in Värnamo and you also find Vandalorum, an art and design centre featuring creative exhibitions. The area surrounding Värnamo offers first-class fishing waters, scenic canoe trails and cycle tours through beautiful countryside. And we have to mention all the fine hiking trails through forests and across open countryside. Don't forget Store Mosse National Park – the biggest wetland in southern Sweden, with an exciting abundance of bird species.
Next to the park Apladalen stands Bruno Mathsson International, a centre festuring Mathsson´s parental home and his first glass building, his office, his studio, and much of his fantastic furniture.
Källemo is one of Scandinavias foremost furniture-design companies. Here the motto is that the furniture should "stand the wear of the eyes". Sven Lundh, the founder of Källemo, has throughout his many years of uncompromising effort, developed new approaches and quality concepts within Scandinavian furniture design.
