Rory Dobner’s whimsical homewares wow the Paris Maison & Objet exhibition

Beautifully crafted, but with an added edge, Rory Dobner's ‘intricate ink’ designs enchant, amuse and beguile, and have been snapped up by Liberty's Gift Room

With his creative influences ranging from Dickensian urchins, Lewis Carroll’s Dormouse and upmarket tattoos, artist and designer Rory Dobner seems to have all bases covered.

Little wonder then, that his stand at the recent Maison et Objet exhibition in Paris was packed to the gills with eager buyers securing his products to send out all over the globe.Bling Bunny Perfect Plate (21cm), £46

Luckily for us, those clever people at Liberty had beaten the crush, having long admired Rory’s exquisitely illustrated homeware, which includes ceramic tiles, mugs and plates.

The Don Dog Tea Towel, £13.50

As a taster of what’s in store, we present these three little beauties – a Love Bird tile (has a parrot ever looked so cool?), the Don Dog tea towel (and who wouldn’t want to cheer up this chappie?), plus the Bling Bunny Perfect Plate, which speaks for itself really.

Love Bird Tile, £39.50

Available at Liberty from February, these gorgeously crafted pieces are sure to become the collectables of the future, so get down to the shop, or source online, as soon as you can.
