NEW YORK-Christine Lemieux, founder and creative director of DwellStudio, has made Fortune magazine’s 2012 list of most powerful women entrepreneurs.
Lemieux is the only honoree from the home furnishings category. Fortune recognizes 10 female entrepreneurs each year “who are outstanding game changers, groundbreakers and innovators,” according to a DwellStudio statement.
Lemieux founded DwellStudio in 2000 as a wholesale and retail modern home and lifestyle brand of fashion-forward home furnishings. The company has since expanded to offer a full range of home decor and children’s furnishings, with products ranging from furniture, bedding, rugs, artwork, tabletop and baby’s and children’s furnishings.
As part of this list, Fortune will hold the 2012 Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit beginning on Oct. 1 and ending on Oct. 3, at Laguna Niguel, Calif.
