Tapettitalo – Vintage Finnish Wallpaper

July 22, 2006

I recently heard about a wallpaper shop in Helsinki with all of these gorgeous Finnish patterns from Pihlgren + Ritola, the shop is called Tapettitalo (the House of Wallpaper in Finnish).

Tapettitalo - Vintage Finnish WallpaperPart of their website is in English, and it’s quite educational so I suggest flipping through it and reading what they have to say about the history of wallpaper in Finland. They carry Pihlgren + Ritola, the oldest working wallpaper manufacturer in Finland.

Some of my favorites include: Cherry Tree #69 212, The most beautiful of the Skylarks #64 673, and my total favorite – Night of the Skylarks #69 659. This would be beautiful in a long hallway leading into a sunny yellow room.

How to order: Tapettitalo will provide you with wallpaper samples and they’ll even ship to Estonia, UK, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Germany and the USA. If you live in another country, contact them directly – they may consider shipping there as well. They accept wire transfer, major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard) and checks. You can find pricing information here.

Thanks for the tip, Mevrouw!
