With Pattern Stories we want to embrace a specific wallpaper design and give the story behind the pattern. We want to show the craftsmanship that leads to the finished wallpaper. We call it Swedish Wallpaper Art.
The dream of being surrounded by a fragrant glade, filled with white little flower bells and green leafs, in a sea of our dear Lily of the Valley.
In the year 2010, in conjunction with princess Victoria and prince Daniels’ wedding, Sandberg got the big honor to design a wallpaper as a celebration to the bride and groom. An honorary assignment for us.
The result came to bo Liljekonvalj (Lily of the Valley), a flower that refers to Daniel's childhood in Gästrikland, where the landscape flower is Lily of the Valley. It´s a very beloved flower, just as the prince and princess and it is often shown in wedding contexts. This is what we call Swedish wallpaper art.
The year after the wallpaper got the reward Wallpaper of the Year by Swedish Elle Decoration. “A very prestigious award that I look back on with pride and humility” – Karolina Kroon, Designer, Sandberg Wallpaper.
“The Lily of the Valley has always been a favorite. I remember the school graduations in primary school, when all children would pick a bouquet of flowers to put on the school desk. It was pure happiness if the Lily of the Valley had begun to bloom then.” – Karolina Kroon, Designer, Sandberg Wallpaper.
“There is no doubt that the pattern Liljekonvalj is close to my heart and I enjoy it just as much every summer when it blooms again.” – Karolina Kroon, Designer, Sandberg Wallpaper.
