Guided tour of life in the Tottie recidence 1775
Anders and Henrica Tottie’s home is characterized by consumption, both as a lifestyle and status marker. Material things and lavish habits are a way of manifesting class and position in society. By surrounding themselves with exclusive furniture, art, clothes, porcelain, food and beverages the family shows that they belong to the power elite in a world that is increasingly being globalized through world trade.
Anders and Henrica Tottie represent the new affluent bourgeoisie in a circle of contemporary scientists and artists. The couple speaks several languages and is keeping up with the latest trends. Experience a unique story of time, consumer society and thoughts about sustainability – 250 years ago and today.
