With an investment of over £400,000, the Hop Merchant has been completely revamped.  Owners Punch Taverns commissioned interior designers Nanu Soda, who in turn wanted to retain the bar's quirky character while making the bar's craft beer and real ale the new focal point of their scheme. 

Furniture and furnishings are an eclectic mix, and follow a vintage industrial style. Our wallcovering Hadrian has been chosen for the main bar - it's rough aged texture complements the charred blackened wood and vintage floral artwork.  

The hallway connecting upper and lower floors is decorated with our Amp'd wallcovering. The large-scale pixelated stripe contrasts with pale floors and exposed brick walls.  Amp'd is a fabric-backed vinyl - scrubbable and hardwearing so resistant to knocks and scrapes in a busy corridor. 

Bathrooms include vintage style tiling, exposed pipes and recycled beer barrels doubling up as sinks. Throughout the Hop Merchant floors have been replaced with encaustic tiles and scrubbed wood, and continuing the industrial theme chicken wire has been used for cupboard doors.
