Charles & Co is an interior design studio founded by Vicky Charles and Julia Cordon in 2016. The head office is in New York with residential, commercial and hospitality projects throughout Europe and North America.
After a 20-year career at Soho House where she was Global Head of design, Vicky established Charles & Co with Julia in order to bring the experience of putting the home in hospitalityto a more intimate scale for private clients.
From small-scale residential renovation to new construction of a large-scale commercial project, listening lies at the heart of the Charles & Co process so that all designs are natural reflections of each client and the surrounding environment of each project.
To achieve that, Vicky works directly with every client - whether they have a strong vision of what they would like to achieve or look to her to create a vision that resonates with their needs and lifestyle.
While Charles & Co works across a range of design styles, all of the studio’s work puts design before decoration and relies on honest materials and expert craftsmen to create spaces of depth and substance that go beyond photo ready to become living ready.
Vicky grew up in the UK where she attended Exeter University. After receiving a BA in English Literature and Fine art she began her career at Soho House in London. During her 20-years with Soho House, Vicky worked her way up to become responsible for the interior design of signature properties including Soho Farmhouse, Malibu, Chicago, Barcelona, and The Ned. She also launched the private client business and was responsible for the creative direction and product development of the Soho Home retail range. She lives with her two children and husband in New York City and the Hudson Valley countryside.
Julia started her career in television production, talent management and public relations. She is responsible for business development and client management at Charles & Co. She works closely with Vicky to ensure client objectives are met through seamless communication. Julia, grew up in the UK, lived in New York where she met Vicky, and now currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband and three children.
