Laura Lees

Laura Lees studied tapestry at Duncan of Jordanstone in Dundee and has made embroidery a central tenet of her varied artistic, commercial and collaborative practice. She’s designed and crafted limited edition one-off pieces for fashion collections with Sibling, Luella and Giles, as well as running her own Laura Lees Label.

Lees continues to work in textiles with a new focus of her first love, interiors and bespoke furniture. A collaboration with furniture designer Bethan Wood brought Lees’ vivid, colourful embroidery to the Milan Salone in 2014. Since then she has worked with bespoke furniture creators Uncommon Projects as well as developing her own style of bright, modernist crazy-paving patchwork to cover vintage stools, daybeds and sofas. The embroidered images that blend urban iconography with more architectural elements have been recontextualised into bigger, bolder statement works such as furniture, huge wall hangings, embroidered rooms and, harking back to original training, exceptionally detailed tapestries.
