Hans Axelsson and Klas Litzén started the first R.O.O.M. store 15 years ago with a sincere interest for furniture, design or architecture. One thing was clear to them right from the beginning; if you really, really enjoy what you are doing, things will turn out just fine. The years passed, and Hans and Klas opened stores in Oslo (1997), Gothenburg (2001) and in Copenhagen (2003). Stockholm and Gothenberg, Sweden
