Having masterminded interiors for many upscale spaces, including Soho House, Lime Wood hotel, and Beaverbrook as well as a host of private houses, Susie understands what it takes to make an exceptional interior.
The collection was created after Susie struggled to find individual, beautifully-made pieces for her projects so started designing her own. In keeping with her studio’s design philosophy, these high-quality pieces are designed to be inviting, timeless and individual.
Susie scoured the country for the very best craftsmen to collaborate with on her furniture pieces.
She said: ‘I have always been fascinated with traditional upholstery methods and I always want to create the very best for my clients, both in terms of design and quality. I feel very strongly that we should be championing the talent and skills that can be found in the UK today.
'Not only is it good to support the craftspeople so the skills will be passed on to the next generation, but this level of workmanship delivers the best quality possible for our clients, ensuring longevity and satisfaction.’
The pop-up space will be curated by Susie and her team, displaying pieces from the new collection as well as a selection of Tim Page’s rugs, chosen to complement the scheme.
