Take your pick from anything in the well-preserved treasure chest of the Jobs sisters’ patterns, it will always be a timeless classic. From fabric, shawls and tablecloths to tapestry and place mats. The sister first set off to work as potters in the 1930’s but glaze was hard to come by during the Second World War. Astrid Sampe, manager at the Nordic Company suggested that they should transfer their ower patterns onto fabric instead.

The Jobs sisters’ colourful, hand printed textiles made perfect complements to the wave of strict and functional expressions that became a trademark after the war.

This pattern by Gocken Jobs was first designed for NK (the Nordic Company) and appeared at their great exhibition in 1945. Every inch of this wallpaper is a unique piece of art.

With the work of Viola Gråsten, Swedish textile design entered a new, modern era characterized by showing shapes and rare colour combinations. Born and educated in Finland, Viola first set foot in Sweden in 1944 when the war made wool hard to come by. She put her bold colours and imaginative trademark on everything from long pile rugs to fabrics and blankets and quickly became one of the most renowned textile artists. In 1947, Viola started working for the well- known designer Astrid Sampe at NK (the Nordic Company; one of Sweden’s oldest great department stores) where she completely renewed their rugs and printed fabrics.

An exciting pattern of leaves, so airy you can feel the sky appear beyond the leaves. The wallpaper pattern is based on Viola Gråsten’s original textile sketches that she made in 1964. This wallpaper is carefully preserving the spontaneous and sketchy expression that was so important to Viola. A timeless design. – Roll Width 53cm – Roll Length 10,05m – Repeat 76cm – Very good light resistance

During the Second World War he fled to Sweden and, while waiting to start work as an architect again, he began to design fabric patterns.

The Scandinavian Designers wallpapers collection offers a series of patterns designed by some of the most famous designers of the golden age of Scandinavian design, especially the 1950s. Originally, these patterns were not necessarily intended to become wallpapers, even if several patterns made by Stig Lindberg, for example, have quickly found their way to the walls. We fall in love (at least that is our case! ...) with these elegant, graphic and original designs, which can be used in a conventional manner on all the walls of a room, or simply like decorative panels.
