Wallpaper*, the international design, fashion and lifestyle magazine is celebrating the best and brightest names from the world’s ten leading style and design nations. This year, the list includes Sweden.

Shining a spotlight on its favourite destinations, Wallpaper* is highlighting 20 hand-picked happenings from each country. The Swedish edit, spread across eight pages in the November issue, includes a sourdough hotel, multicultural fashion designers and Stockholm’s new generation of estate agents who are reinventing the industry. Wallpaper* editor-in-chief Tony Chambers says: "Despite facing stiff competition from its neighbours, Sweden is leading the new wave of Scandinavian design and style talent. They are bringing their unique vision to bear on everything from underwear and vodka bottles to stunning private villas and the world of fine-dining. We’ll continue to indulge in the Swedish creative scene in the years to come."

Alongside Sweden are France, USA, China, South Africa, Canada, Portugal, UAE, The Netherlands and Argentina. Each country has been given its own section which celebrates its diverse mix of both rising stars and established names in fashion, art, architecture, design, travel, food and beauty.

The November issue of Wallpaper* about Sweden hits the newsstands on 13 October.
