The Sandhamn series was the first model of the "Sportstuge series" that Hjorth designed for Nordiska Kompaniet in 1929.
Brostugan was built as a bridge keeper's residence during the 1780s after Gustav III had the first bridge built between Kärsön and Drottningholm Castle. The building had this function until 1931, when it was instead renovated and rebuilt into a café under the direction of architect Ivar Tengbom. During this transformation, a new interior with "Sportstuge" furniture by Axel Einar Hjorth for Nordiska Kompaniet, model Sandhamn, also took place.
Some of the furniture was custom-made to the building and is thus unique objects.
