This striped wallpaper got its name from Carl Larsson, one of Sweden’s most popular artists. Stripes might very well be the most Swedish pattern of them all. This design has such typically Swedish characteristics it was predestined to be exported to the American east coast. Once on foreign soil it was renamed and became synonymous with their New England style. This is the reason why today, the distinctive stripes are much more synonymous with Martha’s Vineyard than with the Swedish west coast. The truth, however, is that even though stripes were on the walls of virtually every Swedish home as early as the 18th century this pattern went through the textile factories of Indian Madras before reaching Nordic latitudes. And that’s how striped design and mattresses came together.
