This elegant store is one delightful mix of colour and assorted patterns.

The name Svenskt Tenn, which means ‘Swedish Pewter’ in English, dates back to the time when pewter items comprised the entire range of products on sale here. Textiles and wallpapers with geometrical patterns arrived on the scene with Austrian architect Josef Frank in the 1930s.

Svenskt Tenn is without doubt one of Sweden’s most influential design concepts, continuously releasing patterns and prints from their enormous archives.
