Merike Bauer’s Annex shop stocks wallpaper and floor coverings otherwise impossible to find in the city, including German manufacturer Object Carpet’s new Rugxstyle collection of incredibly thin, industrial-grade area rugs with colour-tinted, geometric shapes. For walls, try Eley Kishimoto’s vibrant, hand-screened optical-illusion prints, or whimsical flora and fauna from Dutch studio Onszelf – the mixture of illustration and collage is nothing short of inspired. New offerings include Erica Wakerly’s geometric papers, now in hard-wearing vinyl, and Wall & Deco’s bathroom-safe Wet System murals.
