Stockholm apartment by Tekla Evelina Severin
10 / 22

Heckscher found these oars by the Canadian brand Norquay Co. on Instagram. “She makes these paddles with fantastic patterns. I wanted to buy them all.” He settled for a couple, though, when faced with the cost of shipping to Sweden. They work as a “kind of symbol” for bringing the outdoors inside. “Instead of putting my bike or my skis on the wall, I can put a pair of paddles. It’s a little bit more aesthetically pleasing.” Heckscher’s apartment is located about 15 minutes outside of the city, in Saltsjöbaden, which is close to the ocean and a “huge nature preserve where we go hiking and biking.”
