Arbiters of Swedish design since the duo’s inception in 1997, Rhonda Eleish and Edie van Breems of Eleish van Breems came together over their love of Gustavian antiques and have been imbuing American tastes with their vision ever since.

Want to sell your house? Here are the interior design trends you shouldn’t follow

The coronavirus pandemic has cast uncertainty over the real estate market, with a new study by OJO Labs finding that 54% of would-be-buyers cite the inability to see homes in person as a reason for their hesitation to purchase a property.

Despite this delay in their home-buying plans, some 30% of surveyed buyers reveal that they are looking at available listings more often than before their search was impacted by the pandemic.
