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. Design: 19th century original.
