(All images from Svenskt Tenn)
This picture? Be still my beating heart. I want to live inside of it.
A little background. Svenskt Tenn (i.e., “Swedish tin”) was founded in 1924 by Estrid Ericson and Nils Fougstedt. Originally, they sold pewter ware, but in 1930 their range was expanded to include the interior design department for which they’re now known. Josef Frank joined the company in 1934, becoming one of their premier designers. His work is still intricately tied to company, as are designs by Anna Peter, Bjorn Tragardh, and Uno Åhrén.
The brick and mortar store is located on Strandvägen in Stockholm, and each summer they stage a tent exhibition. This summer’s theme is “Window,” and it’s a glorious display of furniture made of iron, stone, rattan and bamboo, combined with Svenskt Tenn classics.
If you’re going to be in Stockholm this summer, check it out for me. Also, if there are any fairy god-mothers out there, here is my Svenskt Tenn webshop wish-list 🙂
