The wedding gift to Crown Prince Gustaf (VI) Adolf and Lady Louise Mountbatten from the people of Stockholm was a newly furnished living room at Ulriksdal Palace. Together with artisans such as furniture designer Carl Malmsten, Märta Måås-Fjetterström was among those who contributed to the interior.
