To complement its signature stripes, the Sandberg Studio has now compiled a book dedicated entirely to checks. Timeless and classic, yet supremely on-trend, Rydal combines old and new, bold and understated designs in one, ‘go-to’ compendium. With nods to age-old, elegant and sophisticated motifs, Rydal reflects this season’s hottest look both in fashion and interiors.
The perfect foil for the existing Sandberg ranges, Rydal comprises 11 exciting designs: a delicious mix of subtle and striking signature papers that make the ideal companions for natural materials such as wood, stone, linen and leather. Inspiration for both design and colour has been taken from the stunning Swedish countryside surrounding Sandberg’s design studio. The wallpapers also pay homage to the region’s heritage, which was firmly rooted in textile production - Rydal was itself a historic spinning mill – and many of Rydal’s motifs have a textile ‘feel’ to them.
Rydal was previewed in a pop-up showroom at Paris Déco Off in January 2015, and launched both nationally and internationally at the end of February 2015.
The wallpapers have been designed in-house by the Sandberg Studio. They are responsibly printed at Sandberg’s factory at Ulricehamn in the west of Sweden. The printing inks and pigments are water-based, non-toxic and harmless, and no detergents, plasticisers or PVC have been used in the manufacturing process.
