A love story between Sweden and France
Our collection Le Village pays homage to the Béarn village Montfort and its petit stone château, home to the talented interior designer, writer, and photographer Sara Silm. The collection also celebrates the connection between the Swedish royal family, the region, and Sandberg as a purveyor to the royal court. It's here that today's King Carl XVI Gustaf's origins can be traced to Jean Bernadotte, who was born in the region's capital city Pau.
Have you ever dreamt of escaping to the French countryside, discovering the lush green foothills of the Pyrenees? Imagine the tinkle of sheep bells as a shepherd guides his flock down a shaded avenue of ancient Sycamore trees. And lazy afternoons spent picking figs in an orchard by a mountain stream.
Purveyor to the Royal Court of Sweden
Our passion for our work is something that was noticed when we were appointed Royal Court Supplier, a title that stands for Swedish quality and Scandinavian design of the highest class and has been awarded an AAA rating.
The love of craftsmanship is evident in every line and brushstroke we make to create beautiful and sustainable designs. Our mission is to create timeless and classic wallpaper of premium quality with a unique expression that lasts over time.
Some do wallpaper we do Swedish Wallpaper Art.
Le Village references antique French Domino, wood-block, and Les Indiennes patterns. Melded with the delicate hand-painted Swedish expressions that have characterized Sandberg's designs since the beginning. Elegance meets rustic, but with just enough whimsy to whisk you away to a fairy tale village in the French countryside.
The simple details of country flowers set in a scallop shell motif form a subtle pattern that creates intimacy without being too visually demanding. The scallop shell is a symbol of the pilgrim, worn on the rucksacks of hikers that pass through the Béarn region on the famous Camino de Santiago, also known as the Way of St James.
