About Campbell Rey

Campbell-Rey is an award-winning design partnership and creative consultancy founded by Duncan Campbell and Charlotte Rey. Working fluently between residential and commercial interior design, creative direction, furniture and product design, their colourful work is a celebration of craftsmanship and conviviality, combined with a spirit of irreverence and a love of materials.

Born in Edinburgh, Duncan read Law at King’s College London and Charlotte, originally from southern Sweden, studied Fashion History and Theory at Central Saint Martins. They began their career together at Acne Studios’ cult publication Acne Paper where they met in 2007, eventually becoming co-editors.

They launched Campbell-Rey in 2014 as a creative consultancy specialising in storytelling for legacy and lifestyle brands, among them Bentley, Bulgari, Baccarat, Penfolds and Veuve Clicquot. Through this work, they became increasingly drawn to the physical space, product design, architecture, and interiors, and began working on design commissions for commercial clients including the London Edition, 1stdibs, Clos19, Kartell, Christie’s, Kitri, Away, Agnona and the Elton John AIDS Foundation in addition to a number of private clients.

In 2019, Campbell-Rey won Newcomer to Watch at the Homes & Gardens Design Awards as well as being included in Country & Townhouse magazine’s Top 50 Interior Designers, Architectural Digest Germany’s Top 200 Influencers and The Gentleman’s Journal’s London’s 50 Most Influential Tastemakers.

Their playful, elegant aesthetic has garnered acclaim from some of the world’s leading publications including Architectural Digest (US, Germany & France), The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, FT Weekend, The World of Interiors, American, British and Turkish Vogue, Vogue Living, House & Garden, Elle Decoration (UK, Sweden & France), Corriere Della Serra and Telegraph Luxury.

David Collins Studio

Design and art direction of ABC DCS, published by Assouline with a foreword by Madonna

Originally intended as a portfolio book for VIP clients, Campbell-Rey worked with the late David Collins and his architectural studio to expand the concept and create a coffee table book that explores the myriad inspirations found in Collins’ award-winning interior design schemes which include The Wolseley, The Blue Bar at The Berkeley, Claridge’s Bar and the penthouse suite at The Connaught Hotel. The book centres around an alphabet of design created by Collins himself, celebrating the influences he attached to each letter.

We worked with Assouline as the publishing partner, and led on the book’s design and art direction. A special edition of the book was created with a navy linen slipcase and gold foil embossed custom lettering.
