Designer, illustrator and co-owner of successful vintage emporium Mason & Painter, Michelle Mason is passionate about interior product design. Known for her strong illustrative style she continues to inspire with exquisitely designed products for clients including British Library, Transport For London and St Pancras International. Endorsed as “the stylist’s favourite” by The Sunday Times Style magazine, Michelle has worked with some of the UK’s most established manufacturers from the potteries of Stoke on Trent to Sheffield’s last remaining pewter factory. Her own products have regularly appeared in the international design press and she frequently sits on judging panels, such as Boost, launched by the Southbank Centre and the Observer to find the next generation of new design talent.
In 2013 she opened her first vintage and lifestyle shop on Columbia Road, home to the famous Sunday flower market, to much acclaim and was immediately invited to create a pop-up stores at the Southbank Centre and Kew Gardens. Her interest in styling with flowers and plants is intrinsically linked to the flower market; which literally unfolds on her doorstep every week and where she gathers seasonal produce to decorate the shop.
She has appeared in articles for Guardian Weekend, Sainsbury Magazine and Living Etc and has contributed articles to Design Exchange magazine and travel articles for Trail Blazer magazine.
