About Svenskt Tenn

Owned by a foundation with a single goal: that the company with its heritage after Josef Frank and Estrid Ericson should live forever.

Svenskt Tenn is an interior design company located on Strandvägen in Stockholm, Sweden. It was founded in 1924 by Estrid Ericson, who recruited Josef Frank to the company 10 years later. Together they created the elegant and boldly patterned personal interior design style that continues to pervade the collection to this day.
