Francis Sultana is the go-to interior designer for international collectors, many of whom have major contemporary art and design collections. Loved for his unique ability to merge the residential requirements of a domestic space with often large-scale visual art, sculpture and installation pieces, his studio is working on projects in the UK and across Europe as well as in China and in the US.
Francis Sultana is one of the world’s foremost interior and furniture designers, working across both residential and commercial projects. In 2019 he celebrated the tenth anniversary of his eponymous studio. The atelier studio is based in St James’, London in the same building as David Gill Gallery, of which Sultana is also Artistic Director.
One of only a handful of UK designers to be featured in Architectural Digest USA’s annual AD100, Francis Sultana is cited as one of Wallpaper’s Top 20 Interior Designers and is listed on House & Garden’s Top 100 and in AD France Top 100 Interior Designers annual list. This year AD France listed Francis as a Grandmaster of Interior Design, placing him with the six other greats in the world of luxury interior design today. His properties are regularly featured in magazines all over the world. He was the only British designer invited to join AD Collections in Paris and his work continues to garner him a global and very loyal following.
Alongside his multiple international interiors projects, his atelier produces annual collections of bespoke and limited edition furniture and textiles under the Francis Sultana brand. Francis designs furniture, lighting and accessories and has created key pieces for important historical interiors such as Spencer House. Francis’s own work is known for his use of noble materials such as bronze, rock crystal and straw marquetry and bespoke fabrics. The studio strives to support artisanal skills and techniques from around the UK and Europe throughout its work.
