Washington D.C, USA, residence to the Ambassador of Sweden

The Spanish-influenced diplomat's residence on Nebraska Avenue was designed by American architect Arthur B. Heaton. For many years, the building was the home of David Lawrence, one of the city's newspaper magnates.

Swedish furnishings

The Ambassador's residence furnishings include rugs by Märta Måås-Fjetterström, Gustavian furniture, art by Stellan Mörner, Olle Baertling and Fredrik Reuterswärd. The gallery has French landscape tapestries from the late 17th and early 18th centuries. Every year, thousands of guests delight in the Swedish furnishings.

Green oasis

The large garden is said to be Washington's most beautiful; it includes the famous tennis court where former ambassador Wilhelm Wachtmeister often played tennis with President George H.W. Bush.
