Midbec Tapeter has been around for almost 50 years and the company is owned and run by Bengt and his son Per. The business plan from the beginning was to import wallpaper from Europe’s strongest brands and sell to the Swedish market. Nowadays however, the business model is quite different.
2014, almost 10 years ago, we turned our eyes to our own drawing board and hired our first designer. Today we have a team of designers, constantly contributing to the Scandinavian wallpaper legacy.
It’s important for us to be able to offer hand-drawn designs with Swedish and Scandinavian influences. Our different styles and expressions open more markets, besides Sweden. The goal is simple – We want Swedish design to decorate the walls around the globe for many years to come.
