In the 18th century, Gothenburg had a town architect named Carl-Wilhelm Carlberg (1746-1814). He designed a large number of beautiful buildings, such as the Gothenburg Cathedral, Gothenburg Town Hall and Gunnebo Palace in Sweden.
In 1784, as part of his work as town architect, Carlberg produced a rendering of small shops to add beauty to an existing wall. Under his drawing, he explained that the function of these small shops was to "provide the residents of the city with a convenient way of satisfying the needs for useful items through shops for porcelain, glass, iron goods, leather, snuff and tobacco, clothing and baked goods". In addition, he writes that these small shops should be built "under and between the lush and leafy trees already present", and one of these trees now appears on this wallpaper. Every roll of wallpaper contains a tree, but you can place several of these trees next to each other. The drawing is preserved in the Regional Archives in Gothenburg.

Erik Gunnar Asplund, is considered as one of the leading architects in 20th century Scandinavia. As an architect, Asplund found it was only natural to extend his artisery into furniture and fixtures for his buildings.
The pattern you see in this particular wallpaper showcases Asplund's original pencil sketches based on two different chairs drawn for the Stockholm City Hall, and of Dieden's office at the Railway Authority. The drawings now belong to The Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design and has been visualized into wallpaper by Sandberg.
