Josef Frank’s uncommonly pared-back KlÃ¶verblad wallpaper, a mÃ©lange of fragile green clovers dancing versus a background of white, makes a look, as does a suite of Frank chairs surrounding the table.

(A pal who rooted out to Sweden presented her to the brand name.) “Instantly, the prints captured my eye,” she remembers. Eventually, she had actually checked out the whole chest and pieces from Svenskt Tenn were elegantly scattered throughout her home.
This enthusiasm undoubtedly led Svenskt Tenn to ask Missoni, in a relocation she refers to as “rather natural” and the item of “shared regard,” to manage this summertime’s exhibit at the shop. The just recently opened Greetings from Margherita (going through August 27) intends to conjure “the laidback sensation of summertime in Italy to Svenskt Tenn,” mentions Missoni, who will likewise be introducing a streetwear-inspired brand name called Maccapani this summertime. The outcome is a fascinating, modern spin on la dolce vita revealed through the concept of a carefree picnic. Her emotional, layered table settings blend an Italian viewpoint with Swedish style, while enhancing the designer’s fondness for Svenskt Tenn. “It’s constantly essential to do something significant, and since there is a lot Svenskt Tenn in my own location, it is storytelling that makes good sense to me,” she states.
