Interiors Can Be More Sustainable, Says British Design Studio Founder
Mansion Global | March 2022
With steps like conscious disposal and working with sustainable brands, Simone Suss prioritizes the environment in her work
The design and function needs of clients is always at the forefront of interior designer Simone Suss’s work—as is protecting the environment through sustainable practices.
Ms. Suss, 46, founded her London-based design studio, Studio Suss, in 2013, and while sustainability has always been a concern of hers, a course in sustainability leadership she took during lockdown led her to learn more about using business to initiate change.
As a member of the British Institute of Interior Design’s professional practice committee, Ms. Suss worked with other members to create a guide for how British designers can be more sustainable and minimize their carbon footprint.
Though interior designers can begin to be more environmentally conscious simply by being more mindful of how waste from projects is disposed, Ms. Suss also uses sustainable goods in her clients’ homes whenever possible, such as woods and wallpapers sourced from responsibly managed forests, without ever sacrificing luxury, style or quality.
In addition to how she’s implemented sustainable methods into her business, Ms. Suss also shared her favorite design elements and where she finds inspiration.Full Article
