It’s the defined contours of the flower’s petals that tell the story of the magnolia. A detail that proves that this wallpaper is an interpretation of the 19th century Japanese tinted woodcuts. The same art form that inspired artists such as Monet and Manet in the cafés of Montmartre during this time period. The geometrical backdrop is also Japanese, found in patterns on Yukata’s classic everyday costumes. Just like the stems of the plants, drawn according to eastern tradition with its stylized form. The magnolia pattern made it to Sweden thanks to Mirjam Korn who originally designed this wallpaper for the Linné collection in 2007.
