Our Story

Choice edits of beautiful home decor to inspire, delight and reflect a unique personal style

Welcome to Gladys & Charles, an independent home décor small business.

I’m Karen, owner and founder of the brand. Our name is a tribute to my late, much loved grandparents. It’s a mature title for a young company, reminding me to look to the past for inspiration while embracing the future with my trademark energy.

After retiring early from a successful corporate career, I found myself with no outlet for a wealth of ambition and drive. Drawing on a life-long passion for home-décor, I created Gladys & Charles. We offer an eclectic edit of pieces that are functional and decorative.

We stock design-led, quality items made to be treasured. Pieces are hand-picked to be as distinct as our customers and their homes. We source products thoughtfully, cherry-picking the most unusual wholesalers and scouring the globe.

Our virtual doors and personalised service are always open!
