PENSON's Pick: Rock Boho Vibes

PENSON’s Pick: Rock Boho Vibes

If you haven’t lived under a rock all your life you must have heard of The Rolling Stones.

Stockholm Furniture Fair returned all guns blazing this year and PENSON team was fortunate to be a part of it. While it’s impossible to round up an event of such scale, we will foolishly attempt to do so.
