2014 Artists Series featuring Kathleen Mullaney Custom Designer Pillows


2014 Artists Series featuring Kathleen Mullaney



The first time I saw Kathi's creations I was mesmerized by the intricacy of her designs. In spite of the uncertainty life as an artist brings, she has followed her dreams and brings beauty into the lives of many through her artistry. Specializing in couture pillows, custom slipcovers, and bespoke lampshades, she magically transforms fabulous fabrics, tassels  and trims into works of art.

Even as a child Kathi designed and sewed her own clothing. She is always on the quest for unique textiles, working with everything from silks and satins, to velvet and mohair. Finding a special piece by Scalamandre, Fortuny, Chelsea or Rose Tarlow is always a thrill. Kathi’s attention to the smallest details and her custom embroidery truly make a project sing.

I have always believed that art and artful accessories bring a home’s d├ęcor up to a higher level of beauty.  Kathi can be one of the artists to create this atmosphere for you. You can reach her at 206-721-0137, Kathleen's Facebook page,  or email her at kathleen.mullaney@comcast.net 

Please enjoy this selection of Kathleen's equisite and artful work!

Oh, this is an entirely different sort of art, requiring a completely different course of study: TEXTILES! There is so much to study and learn in the area of the arts, isn't there?

HAPPY SUNDAY, KARENA! Anita

This is so unique, I am so impressed on her skills to repair and restore an antique tapestry. Wish I had that talent.
