Passion for pineapple

11 June, 2015

iwaherdensjö-pineapple-wallpaper-photowallLately we’ve seen the pineapple everywhere in the interior world. On posters, pillow cases, lamp foots – you name it. Photowall of course is a big fan of the trend and for the brave we have wallpapers to decorate the walls with this beautiful fruit.

iwaherdensjö-pineapple-wallpaper-photowallWe all love this fruit, and when you think about it – it’s not that strange. A juicy, exotic fruit that make us dream of summer and foreign worlds.

NUAgency_pineapple_ wallpaper_PhotowallThe fascination of pineapples started back in the 15th century. At the time it was a rare and very expensive fruit, and therefore it became a symbol of wealth and hospitality. At dinners people decorated the tables with pineapples to show their status. The architects at the time was not late to embrace the popularity of the fruit. They used the shape for textiles, lamps and even buildings.
