Introducing... Custhom Design

I've fallen slightly in love with these stunning Staffordshire dogs, £120 per pair (limited to a run of just 10 pairs). I just love how they've taken a classic bit of mantlepiece decoration and pared it right down – and that teal/gold colour palette is so striking.

These little beauties are by CUSTHOM Design aka Nathan Philpott and Jemma Ooi, who met as students at the RCA, is an exciting, young and innovative studio. Check out their other work at their launch party this Friday, 6-9pm at Start Space, Columbia Road, east London as part of the London Design Festival – or pop by the week-long exhibition, running from now until Sunday.

The CUSTHOM USP is about combining traditional craft techniques with cutting edge technology – so don't miss their mind-bending heat-sensitive wallpaper, which changes colour and design as temperatures rise (anyone remember that jewellery in the late 80s that did the same? I think I had a little snail-shaped necklace as a kid...). Nathan is also fascinated by "digital embroidery"... see the wallpaper (from £170 per roll) below, and don't miss the show to find out how it all works.
