Best Wallpaper

  • Flavor Paper

    216 Pacific St., nr. Court St., Boerum Hill; 718-422-0230

    If you think about wallpaper at all—which a lot of design people don’t anymore—you think of two things: dumpy historical reproductions, or those flocked-and-foiled seventies patterns that produce nightmares. Erase those clichés from your mind with a visit to Boerum Hill’s Flavor Paper, whose products line the Tribeca Steve Madden boutique and the upcoming Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg. At the Brooklyn showroom, you can browse hand-screened and digital-printed wallpapers that come in genuinely hip designs: fishnet, farmers’ market, even kitschy woodgrain. Visitors can also commission their own, with prices starting at $150 per roll for hand-screened paper or $7 per square foot for digital output.
