Founder of Architerior and Architerior Galleryshop, Stockholm & Munich

Stephanie Dahlström founded Architerior Galleryshop in 2016 when she handpicked a group of Instagramming photographers to join the website and share their thoughts about their photos. With creators from all over the world, Architerior Galleryshop has become a portal for young creativity.
Stephanie has been blogging and Instagramming under the name Architerior for years, and realised the need for making artists and their work more approachable by using social media. She aims at offering meaningful contemporary art at affordable prices while supporting creative artists. Read more about her before you may want to contribute your art to her start-up.

In the art world currently I find most exciting that…
the lines between art, design, interior and decoration are being erased. A piece of furniture can be art and art can be functional.

Numbers of unanswered mails in your account today…
Six.

Perfect working outfit…
Black turtle-neck and high-waist trousers.

Favourite new brand discovery…
Ace & Tate.

Artists(s) we should have on our watch list are…
photographer Gabrielle Aquadro, glass artist Hanna Hansdotter, abstract painter Heather Day.

Your everyday online art read is…
Instagram, Collecteurs, Artnet, Designboom.

Your necessary extravagance is…
Shellfish.

Most ridiculous thing you ever bought…
It must be one of my hipster outfits I bought when I lived in Paris after graduating high school. Back then it was a treasure hunt going through the 1-Euro clothing piles. I saved some of the most crazy pieces, including an orange blouse made from something looking like a 70s curtain. Let’s call it arty!

Ultimate secret after long working hours…
Chilling on the couch with a series, and drinking tea out of super fancy gold-edged cups. So relaxing and you’ll feel elegant no matter how tired you are!

Favourite collaboration of the art- and fashion world…
I’m an admirer of architectural art photography, so I’d have to say my favourite art/fashion collaboration is the Prada Marfa Sculpture by Michael Elmgreen & Ingar Dragset. The secluded Prada store in the middle of the desert looks so iconic.

Favourite hashtag…
#currentdesignsituation is my go to hashtag for interior inspiration. #abstractart is also one of my classics.

On your office table you always have…
A cup of coffee and my laptop.

The most arty city is…
Venice, Italy.

Who are the best dressed in the art world…
I love the creative and colourful style of Aureta. Wish I could be as bold as her sometimes. Some of her outfits are like artworks.

Decribe yourself in three emojis…
😻👑🦀

Art world gent I would love to have lunch with…
I’d like to join Tony Cragg in his studio for lunch and then create a big and exotic sculpture together.
