"There is something about Charlene Mullen's embroidery. It could be the quirky humour of her Drawings range, or the pleasingly simple shapes of her Geometric designs, or the clever way she has updated traditional embroidery and folk motifs. Whatever it is, it speaks to people."
Jennifer Goulding, House & Garden.
From her training in both illustration, print and an established career in the fashion industry, Charlene has successfully turned her talents to designing luxury homewares. Since the launch of the studio in September 2008 at 100% Design where she made the best newcomer list, she has won international acclaim having work shown in London, Paris, Milan and New York as well as being featured in leading interior design publications worldwide.
Charlene creates unique embroidered textiles mixing traditional techniques with her love of the drawn line. The end product - cushions, throws and lampshades are suitable for residential and commercial projects. Drawing on a wide range of inspiration such as Swiss paper cuts, Stig Lindberg's ceramics, Blackwork, scientific structures, tribal costumes, Gee Bend quilts, she works with master craftsmen in India so each piece is beautifully hand embroidered using tapestry wool to ensure shade, colour fastness and durability.
In addition to the existing collections Charlene provides a commissioning service working with private clients, interior designers and architects to create bespoke projects both in the U.K. and worldwide.
