“There is something about Charlene Mullens 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.

After an established career in the fashion industry, she has successfully turned her talents to designing luxury embroidered 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 modern design. Drawing on a wide range of inspiration she makes cushions, blankets and lampshades suitable for residential and commercial projects. The studio is committed to original design and making quality products. In addition to the collection Charlene provides a commissioning service working with private clients, interior designers and architects to create bespoke projects both in the U.K. and worldwide.

Roy McMakin is a designer, architect, and furniture maker. His art, which draws on his knowledge of and experience within these disciplines, demonstrates deep engagement with the artistic potential of domestic objects and environments. McMakin works with two classes of objects: in sculpture that looks like furniture or mundane household fixtures such as a non-functioning toilet made of wood, and furniture that is detailed or decorated to emphasize its sculptural aspects such as a wooden writing desk painted bright pink. He tests the cultural distinctions of these two types of objects that can at times, occupy the same physical space.


McMakin first brought his work to the public through Domestic Furniture, his Los Angeles showroom (closed in 1991). He continues to engage with the public through Domestic Architecture, his Seattle-based design firm whose portfolio has expanded from remodeling to ground-up home designs. MOCA Pacific Design Center, West Hollywood, California exhibited a survey of McMakin’s art and design work in 2003. Sculptures by McMakin are permanently installed at the University of California’s San Francisco’s Mission Bay campus and in the Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle. McMakin lives and works in Seattle.
