“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.
