During the peak of modernism artists were rejected as immoral. The patterns seen on this wallpaper, with its strict lines and slick surfaces, were constantly at risk of being prohibited. Eventually all the backbiters had to step back and now, as we gaze back on the 20th century, we acknowledge modernism as the art form that dominated the entire century. It goes the whole hog with absurd measures and has influenced functionalist architecture from spiral staircases to apartment buildings. This wallpaper is a trip back to the 1950s with a clean and stripped surface that is a trademark of functional form.

This is part of the 'Jubileum' collection by Boråstapeter.
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.
