Interior architect and designer Estrid Ericson founded, together with Nils Fougstedt, the company Firma Svenskt Tenn in 1924. Initially, they designed innovative pewter objects and employed designers such as Björn Trägårdh, Uno Åhrén, Anna Petrus, and Tyra Lundgren. In 1927, Svenskt Tenn moved to Strandvägen in Stockholm, expanding its business to homewares, furniture, and textiles. During the first years, Åhrén and Trägårdh designed the furniture at Firma Svenskt Tenn.
