The Gilded Age: Handmade Wallpaper from Custhom in London

October 8, 2018

We recently discovered Custhom, a London-based design studio specializing in handmade wallpaper. Designers Nathan Philpott and Jemma Ooi find inspiration in Otomi embroidery, Palladian window frames, and 1950s American abstract art in their FSC-certified paste-up or repositionable paper. Here is a selection of the studio’s most glamorous designs.
