Our Story

Reuben & Char is an Irish company established in 2019 for people with exceptionally quirky style who want to inject personality and individuality into their homes or work spaces.

Husband and Wife team, Ciaran and Katie Maher combined their skills and expertise to set up the URBAN DESIGN STUDIO in 2014. A creative, vibrant, and enthusiastic graphic design and print studio based in Cork, it is comprised of graphic designers, interior designers, printers and sign-makers.

In 2019 Katie had a brainwave.

Why not utilise our designers, our creatives and our print professionals to offer beautifully designed wallpapers to people who have a  braver and bolder design aesthetic?

Great idea Katie! So what shall we call it?

Inspiration was staring us in the face…

Meet Ciaran and Katie’s boys…

And so, Reuben & Char was born.

Our aim is to help people enhance their home or work space by adding on-trend individuality, character and creativity to their everyday surroundings and to create interior spaces that wow.

Literally Transformed my House!!

Reuben and Char Wallpapers have literally transformed my house and each one in such a unique and creative way. From my teenage son’s graffic-style parrot which has made his room cool and interesting to mine which is soft and cozy to the hall which gives bold and colourful statement on entry all show the vast range of wallpapers available and there is certainly one for each personality! There is certainly a modern feel to each and the ease to putting up dispels any of the old beliefs that wallpaper is old fashioned, hard to use and ruins your walls….With this you could literally change it up and down every year just like paint. Loving my new look – Thanks Reuben and Char… I am already looking forward to next season!!

A Pleasure to Deal With

Thanks to Reuben & Char for creating such a unique wallpaper for our twins bedroom. The whole process was so professional and it was a pleasure to deal with the team.You took our ideas and came back with a design that perfectly fitted our girls bedroom and they are thrilled with the result. The self adhesive vinyl is particularly great in a kids room as it has proved very durable against the additional ‘designs’ that have appeared, easy to wipe and clean. Thank you so much guys – we will definitely be back for the boys room.
