I’m pretty sure many many bloggers before me have fallen in love with the curvy yet simplistic lines of the Swedish Mora Clock.
Apparently this style of clock comes from around the town of Mora in the Delarna region of Central Sweden in the 1700′s, with the peak of the Mora clock building being in the 1800′s.
The most famous of Mora Clock builders was Anders Anderson, whose initials were on the clock faces he created – “A A S Mora”.
But that doesn’t really matter if you simply admire the shape and beauty of the Mora Clock.
Something I find myself thinking of recently. A LOT.
Unfortunately, Mora’s are pretty hard to come by – at least in Canada. Apparently every once in awhile you can get a reproduction at Homesense.
But what’s got me even more excited is that, much like so many of our ideas, a Mora clock can be DIY’d!
I have just the spot for one….just picture it on that wall, with a sliding barn door for the doorway next to it. Perfection!
Do you like the curvaceous shape of the Swedish Mora Clock? What color are you drawn to – bright and vibrant or subdued and neutral?
