Svenskt Tenn is possibly the most famous design store in Sweden and it is easy to understand why. Designer Estrid Ericson initially needed a space to sell her pewter wares, but over time her interest turned to interiors. Ericson teamed up with Jewish-Austrian architect and furniture designer Josef Frank (who had fled to Sweden to avoid the Nazis), and their interior collaborations became renowned after the world expos of the late 1930s. Today the store’s inventory is in the thousands—bolts of beautifully patterned fabrics, Scandinavian furniture, cushions, throws, curtains, and pretty much everything else you could imagine for your home. There is much here that is both portable and giftable, and they also sell other brands like Fornasetti.
