10 Online Wallpapr Shops We Love, Design*Sponge

I remember when my parents walked us through our current family home for the first time. It had shag carpeting and 70s wallpaper galore. “Ick! Wallpaper?! How dated,” I thought to myself. While it definitely wasn’t en vogue at the time, times have changed indeed. You’d be hard-pressed nowadays to find a designer who isn’t a wallpaper advocate. And when you look at all the category has to offer, it’s not in the least bit surprising. Wallpapers have become works of art themselves, and oftentimes are created not to serve as the backdrop for statement pieces, but to be a statement piece themselves.

Today, in honor of our adoration for all the makers who are making wallpaper fabulous again, we’ve had some fun rounding up 10 Wallpaper Shops We Love. Whether featuring bold florals or pattern-on-pattern, their works demand attention, and we are happy to give it to them. Click through to see the whole set. Enjoy! —Garrett
