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.
When industrialism flourished sometime during the turn of the 19th century a couple of artists decided it was time for a revolution. They wanted to prove what the hand could do and machine could not. Accordingly, they began painting patterns that went above and beyond every rule and tradition known to man during that era. And, despite the fact that their patterns were full of drawings of beautiful, winding plants revealing nothing but the telltale signs of true romantics, the artists were all depicted as vulgar rebels. Today, their work of art is called Jugend, or Art Nouveau in French. And, should you take a closer look you’ll find every characteristic of a true revolutionary romantic: sweeping unending lines, rhythmically repeated flowers and abstract background lines in total harmony with Jugendstyle painted stems. Quite simply, nature’s harp at play.
