Dining room inspiration from Svenskt Tenn

Margherita's Dining Room

Margherita’s dining room at her home in Italy is an invitation to long dinners and festive events. The same mood is captured in Svenskt Tenn’s dining room this summer, where we set the table with a festive colour palette, Murano glass, Italian porcelain, and an abundance of flowers.

The summery porcelain that Margherita designed for Svenskt Tenn is handcrafted by Ceramica Pinto in Vietri Sul Mare, Italy. Together with the colourful drinking glasses from Murano, they represent Italian craftsmanship at its very best. For each place setting, we have combined the Italian craftsmanship with Svenskt Tenn’s classic placemats and linen napkins and the Bistro cutlery series in a summery, shade of blue.

In the dining room, Margherita has a whole dresser full of placemats in various Josef Frank-designs.

Josef Frank’s designs appeal to me – as well as the philosophy that everything fits together – no matter if it is old or new, has different styles, colours and patterns.

Serve water, wine or lemonade in the Italian glasses Fantasia and Goto, designed by Marie Brandolini, the founder of Laguna B in Italy. They are handcrafted in Murano and add an aesthetically playful and elegant feel to every table setting.

A carafe can also be a vase. Get inspired by Margherita and use both carafes and glasses for the summer bouquets.

Clean lines and an airy lightness characterise Josef Frank’s Chair 1165. The six arches in the rattan back give a rhythmic and open character to the design. The chair was designed by Josef Frank for Svenskt Tenn in 1947.

The table setting is accompanied by modern interior accessories such as the Rök (Smoke) carafe by Frida Fjellman, designed in 2022; the Fina Snäckan (Fine Shell) dish by Åsa Jungnelius, designed in 2014; and the Serpentin (Serpentine) tablecloth by Natasia Wadsted for Svenskt Tenn.

Next to the dining table is Josef Frank's classic tea trolley 691, designed in the late 1930s. A tea trolley works perfectly as a side table and in the dining room for extra serving platters, glasses, and porcelain.
