Though a comfortable and well decorated ship, Stockholm lacked the ornateness traditionally associated with ocean liner decor. Nonetheless Stockholm was a pleasant and relaxing ship. The public rooms featured art work by such noted Swedish artists as Gunnar Erik Ström and Stig Blomberg. Departing from the use of exotic woods and heavy tapestries common to earlier Swedish American ships, Stockholm made use of modern materials and had a light and airy feel to her. Her owners stated mater of factly that she was to “provide pleasant and restful comfort in tasteful and artistic surroundings.” In another departure from tradition, the “old-fashioned portholes” gave way to big rectangular windows that afforded both public and private rooms sweeping views of the passing sea.

First Class Dining Room
The dining room was a light and airy room that provided a comfortable dining venue for passengers. A glass painting by Gunnar Erik Ström depicted early Swedish pioneers at Delaware.
The entire forward portion of the promenade deck formed the First Class Lounge. The sweeping frontal curve provided wonderful views through the big windows.
