Not everybody gets to turn 110 years, but our wallpaper factory does. Jubileum is a collection of the century – a birthday gift from all of us at Boråstapeter to all of you across the world who have decorated with our classic, eternally stylish wallpapers for decades and will continue to do so for years to come. This is a collection that features our most popular patterns since 1905 until today. Inspired by the national romanticism from the turn of the 19th century, the colourful optimism of the 1950s and the warm, vivid patterns that were thrown in for free in the 1980s when the French wave swept across Sweden. We invite you to browse through our greatest wallpapers of all time, gently brought out from our vast archives and updated in new, modern shades and colours that fit in with your life here and now.
It’s the defined contours of the flower’s petals that tell the story of the magnolia.A detail that proves that this wallpaper is an interpretation of the 19th century Japanese tinted woodcuts. The same art form that inspired artists such as Monet and Manet in the cafés of Montmartre during this time period. The geometrical backdrop is also Japanese, found in patterns on Yukata’s classic everyday costumes. Just like the stems of the plants, drawn according to eastern tradition with its stylized form. The magnolia pattern made it to Sweden thanks to Mirjam Korn who originally designed this wallpaper for the Linné collection in 2007.
