Valvet is our sensory space, our playground for creativity and a blank canvas to fill. It's a a carefully curated, yet forever changing exhibition, filled with all things that we love. See, feel and experience the symbiotic relationship between the artists, enjoy the carefully curated context this space enhance and devour the hand picked selection. All pieces at Valvet including art, interior and decor are available to purchase.
We believe that we need to engage emotions around everything we do and surround ourselves with, we need to feel more, be more.
We no longer search for things that simply looks good, the emotions around each piece is for us what brings meaning, substance and a depth to our surroundings. As much as the exquisit design is important, we also believe that the story behind the pieces is what brings out the true emotions. We live to work, we love to work and our passion is our guide and fuel. We challenge the market with our innovative and forever curious mindset and our aim is to inspire and encourage a slow, sustainable and thoughtful pace of consumerism.
Handpicked with a purpose –
To bring beauty, soul and love to your home
Our Space, Your Imagination
At Valvet in the heart of Old Gothenburg, placed in Radheska huset since 1669, the vaulted ceiling and original stone floor creates an astonishing backdrop for photographic shoots. The space lends itself as a blank canvas to use for photographic shoots.
The Piano and the Greenhouse
The dilapidated glass shell is a shelter, of sorts, to two more guests, in the form of grapevines. The piano came here to rest and the vines to bear fruit. We have a mutual understanding; we do not interfere with their existence and they do not demand any unnecessary care or special treatment. As such, the piano has settled down to a carefree life in the company of the vines.

Shadow play is an ancient form of storytelling
yet to us it's a form of artistic enhancement
born from the mesmerising
connection between a source of light
and the object itself.
The powerful yet insignificant shapes
produced by a body coming between rays of light
and a surface creates the magic in the image.
The shadows miss interpreted reference as
proximity, ominous oppressiveness is to us the contrary,
– soft, understated and beautiful
