Elegant design, for interesting lives.
Since 2011, Sturman & Co. has become the go-to Yorkshire Interior Design Studio for original, beautiful and practical interior designs. Our award-winning modern English aesthetic is rooted in classical styles and a sensitivity for colour that means no two schemes are ever the same.
From our first contact, we place our discerning clients at the heart of our practice to ensure you enjoy and feel part of the transformation that lies ahead. With our extensive experience, attention to detail and the very best trade contacts for your interior fit out, your Sturman & Co. interior will surpass all your expectations.
Sturman & Co.
Our founder Bess Sturman established the studio in 2011 to offer a contemporary design service underpinned by the unique professional skills she had honed in her previous corporate and legal careers. She has since overseen the growth of the business from the one-woman-home-based practice that designed the award-winning Ilkley Cinema in 2015, to the multi-disciplinary team based in our Ilkley studio today.
We work closely with a strong network of architects, engineers, makers and designers who all support Bess in providing exceptional design and service to our clients.

GRADE II LISTED COUNTRY HOUSE
This stunning country house had stayed in the same family for generations and was bought by our clients in a tired state. They could see the potential and asked us to create a comfortable and relaxed interior for them in this whole-house restoration project.

NEARLY NEW FAMILY HOME
Our clients wanted a beautiful space for socialising and family eating to replace the outdated kitchen they had inherited. They approached us to help after seeing what Bess had done with the same space next door.
LOCATION / Ilkley
Our client was keen to bring something really special to the people of Ilkley with the opening of Europe’s smallest 4K cinema, designed by Bess in 2015.
