HBL Retail: Svenskt Tenn, Stockholm

Tuesday, 13 March 2012

The flagship store of renowned Stockholm interiors brand Svenskt Tenn has undergone a major refurbishment after closing its doors for several months last year. WGSN-homebuildlife went to take a look.

Svenskt Tenn was established by Estrid Ericson in 1924 and has become known for its timeless home furnishings and accessories, which feature the distinctive furniture and textile designs of Austrian designer and architect Josef Frank.

Having originally opened its doors in 1927, the store was in need of modernisation and the project set out to enlarge the whole space, allowing the store to more clearly display its eclectic mix of textiles and furnishings.

The project, undertaken by British architectural firm HMKM, has even made room for a stylish new tea room on the second floor.
