While in Stockholm for the launch of Volvo’s new XC90, we took some time to peruse the Scandinavian design shops that litter the streets of the Swedish city. While many of these stores and studios contain the same minimal aesthetic you’d expect from the Ikean utopia, there’s one where you can go if you want to take a battering ram of color to your eyeballs that you won’t find elsewhere.

Svenskt Tenn was founded in 1924 and still features designs from Josef Frank and Estrid Ericson. What you’ll find in the shop is a slew of lamps, tables, throw pillows, and other home goods decked out in wild patterns. Here’s a few of the funkiest.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
