Fabulous Fabrics from Svenskt Tenn! / Fantastiske mønstre fra Svenskt Tenn!

Last week I got this great tip from an old high school friend, Benedicte (Dikken) to check out the fabrics and patterns by Josef Frank for Svenskt Tenn. And was she right or what? The patterns are definitely bold, but I really love the intricate patterns and they definitely bring an extra oomph to the decor. Svenskt Tenn was founded in 1924 by Josef Frank and Estrid Ericson and have definitely had a strong influence on Scandinavian and particularily Swedish design. Below you can get a closer look on the amazing patterns and furniture Frank made for the company.

Forrige uke fikk jeg et supert tips av en gammel klassevenninne, Benedicte (Dikken) om å sjekke ut stoffene fra Josef Frank for Svenskt Tenn. Og der fant jeg massevis av fantastiske mønstre! De er definitivt "vågale" men jeg synes virkelig at de gir rommene "det lille ekstra". Svenskt Tenn ble grunnlagt i 1924 av Josef Frank og Estrid Ericson, og har definitivt hatt sterk innflytelse på skandinavisk og spesielt svensk design. Nedenfor får du massevis av inspirasjonsbilder av stoffene/mønstrene og møblene Josef Frank lagde.

This awesome chest was made by Josef Frank for Svenskt Tenn. It was auctioned out by Christie's, and was expected to go for between $ 15,000-20,000. Ended up going for a crazy $ 51,613.

Fun fact: In "Mamma Mia", Meryl Streep is throwing herself at this fabric in white. The director is a huge fan of Josef Frank and wanted to somehow implement his fabrics in the movie.

Lucky Benedicte (the old high school friend) actually has some fabulous cushions covered with the "Teheran" fabric!

Great job. I especially l like how you are using able to use such glamorous patterns in proportion so the featured pieces don't overshadow the room's overall design.
