Living room inspiration from Svenskt Tenn

Lombardian Living Room

Margherita Maccapani Missoni's own living room in Varese, Lombardy is an eclectic mix of colours and patterns, and classic and modern design. There were many similarities to Svenskt Tenn’s interior design philosophy, so we decided to combine the two worlds.

Patterns and colours on curtains and furniture harmonise with the art hanging on the walls. The seating area consists of a mix of furniture: sofa, armchairs and stools which together create an oasis of comfort. A large bunch of marguerites in a vase acts as a centrepiece and invites nature into the living room.

I generally have a playful attitude towards interior design, and I like to go with my gut feeling. It comes naturally for me to mix the sophisticated with eclectic, flea market finds with design objects, and different colours and patterns. It’s an approach that fits well with Svenskt Tenn’s philosophy.

Beautiful furnishings

Small tables serve an important function, especially in the living room. Here, table 1058 has been placed next to the sofa with an exquisite fruit platter and on Josef Frank's curved folding table 1133, we find several of this summer’s new arrivals: the Greetings from Margherita tray and the handmade candles from Italy.

Dragonflies are hidden here and there among Aramals large, green leaves. The print was designed by Josef Frank in the early 1940s, and it is Margherita’s favourite pattern.


Larger furniture pieces such as the Liljevalchs sofa, coffee table 2139 and armchair 966 come together in the living room – all designs from the 1930s and 1950s. The furniture is combined with new designs from Svenskt Tenn's range, including the sculptural, functional, and elegant Sirkka stool, designed by artist Mimmi Blomqvist in 2023. The stool is both practical and beautiful with its soft, mushroom-like shape. It is made of ash wood, with a weightiness and design that make it both stable and eye-catching.
