About Us

Who We Are

A Devonshire girl at heart, Cheney Penrose’s passion for creating beautiful homewares started on the potters wheel. From this love for creation, her education led on to graduate in fine art, interior and 3-dimensional design.

Internationally known for her ‘Wild Summer’ series of paintings, and figurative sculptures, Cheney has spent a decade living in the Middle East, exhibiting artworks in Bahrain, Dubai and Singapore.

What We Do

Cheney has been creating hand-made ceramics, sculptures, and artworks since leaving college, her perspective shaped by her travels over that time. Though living in the Middle East, Cheney developed a deeper level of appreciation for the British seasons, the rich palette of colour and contrasts shaped by the miracle of nature, bursting through each stage of the year.

A recent move back to England and pastures greener has led Cheney, now based on the Surrey/Hampshire borders to further develop her latest collection. These influences have helped build the essence of her designs by embracing the comfort of home with warmth, tradition, quality, and elegance.

Cheney Penrose Designs was launched to bring her unique vision and contemporary art into everyday living. Each product has been designed and created to combine beautiful hand painted artwork with the finest British production methods. Cheney Penrose Designs is built on family values with the current team led by her husband Aaron, and her eldest daughter Ebony. The team is incredibly lucky to have the support and sewing genius of Tracy Budden, without whom many of the fabulous fabric products would not exist.

Cheney’s aim is to bring stunning visual design and the highest quality products into your home for everyday use, whether as a gift to yourself or others.

It is a combination of these themes, which unite every range and product, making each piece a unique work of art.
