Sweden, 1885-1967 Austrian-born architect Josef Frank adopted Swedish citizenship in the 1930s. He is best known for his colorful fabric designs for the Swedish company Svenskt Tenn. His fabrics are still highly coveted on the design scene today, gracing many homes and hotels, most notably The Maidstone in East Hampton, NY, which features many of his fabrics and wallpapers.

High & Low: Finding the Look of Josef Frank Fabric for Less
We’re not the first and we certainly won’t be the last to rue the high price tag attached to Josef Frank’s splendidly graphic and surreal fabric designs. Unable to pay upwards of $200 per yard, but yearning to add some of his Swedish modern aesthetic to our home, we searched for a few inspired alternatives that won’t break the bank.
One of many I will post of Carina Schott's home (she is the owner of what I think is one of the best children's clothing sites www.nonchalantmom.com). Love the freshness of the striped Ikea rug with the Joseph Frank fabric on the wall and the light wood furniture...

From: the July/August 2009 issue of Metropolitan Home. "Modern Swedish Style" Renovating a classic 19th-century home in upstate New York, Douglas Larson kept things simple, letting the sun shine in and giving 19th-century proportions a fresh Swedish twist. The Larsons dressed up their Min bed from Design Within Reach with a Josef Frank fabric for Svenskt Tenn through Brunschwig et Fils; the Robin bedside chests are also from Ikea.
