#9: The Art of interior design

We headed over to Svenskt Tenn at Strandvägen 5 this January morning to view their fantastic collection of artful craft work and listen to the story of how Svenskt Tenn's founder Estrid Ericson together with Josef Frank built a company with a continuos outflow of great art. How they created the elegant and boldly patterned personal interior design style that continues to pervade the collection to this day. Greeting us with tea in the Svenskt Tenn Tea Room their curator Per Ahldén presented the inspiring work an story of Svenskt Tenn - we look forward to coming back!
