For some time ago I received a stunning huge sample of Boråstapeter's new wallpaper collection that is being launched on 15th June. It is called Scandinavian Designers II and is full of breathtaking patterns! I just love the designers that are included in this collection and could not be happier to have these sample pieces of my own! I guess you will see examples of these patterns every now and then ahead, as I cannot resist moving the sheets around in my home, fastening them on my walls, framing them or just elegantly piling them here and there on some table or in a corner. I am fond of patterns and design and these by iconic Scandinavian designers are just my favourites right now. I think they will be a hit for wallpaper seekers during summer 2016 and I can imagine how well the summery, flowery patterns would look e.g. in a summer residence.
If you like me recently have painted all walls white and there is no particular wall available to change, I suggest you do like me. Just frame a smaller piece of the wallpaper and voilà, you have a lot of new picture frames cheering up your walls! I think it is a real design treasure to have any of these patterns, as these are rare and some of them have been created as early as in the 1940s!
The designers are Stig Lindberg, Lisbet and Gocken Jobs, Viola Gråsten and Arne Jacobsen! Stig Lindberg would have turned 100 years this year and his pattern Berså, which was originally featured on coffee cups and other items is now also available as wallpaper.
The collections consists of 14 patterns in several colour variants. I think it is splendid that old design patterns are taken into use in new areas and in that way let us of newer generations take part of the wonderful art that existed during times gone by. Sometimes I feel that the illustrations and patterns in the 1950s were so much nicer than the new ones are today.
