It's been a long time since I completely lost myself in an online store, but when I found Robin Sprong, I lost an hour. Maybe two. The online retailer is stocked with fantastic surface designs, from surreal sketches to whimsical patterns to cutting-edge Lomography panels.
Based in Cape Town, the company works with South African artists and illustrators to design creative surface materials. Their options range from Soil Design's vintage-inspired skulls and owls to Azulejos' intricate faux-tile patterns. Postage stamps, pop art lettering, shale stones, maps, whispering children, color-saturated surfers: all are fair game for wallpaper here.
Robin Sprong wallpaper is price upon request and much of it is bespoke. Even if that moves it out of your price range, it's well worth visiting for an artistic, compelling design fix.
