In the 19th century, the so-called neo-styles entered Sweden. Neo-Renaissance, neo-Rococo and neo-Baroque – all of which were updated versions of previously big and successful styles – lived side by side during almost the entire century. The wallpaper Edvin has a symmetrical pattern that looks the same from every direction and has probably been hanging in a ceiling. The rhombus, which here has been turned up to a standing position, was one of the 19th century’s most popular patterns. The pattern survived for decades and it’s therefore difficult to say exactly from which year this particular wallpaper originates.
