This pared-down palette creates a cool canvas for a Danish couple’s collections of 1940s and 1950s furniture (sourced mainly from France) in their Fredensborg home. Wicker chairs are teamed with a simply draped sofa alongside edgier, industrial-style cabinets and a metal table from Fil de Fer (fildefer.dk). Photography: Mikkel Russel/House of Pictures
