Bess Sturman (Sturman & Co.) is an award-winning interior designer providing bespoke design and project management services for both residential and commercial clients.

Based in Ilkley, West Yorkshire, Bess’ design practice aims to provide clients with an enduring sense of space; an objective inspired by the individual personalities and day-to-day lives of the people who live and work in her spaces.

Her residential portfolio features work ranging from historic building restoration to whole house remodelling, as well as lighting and furniture design. Complementing this is a collection of boutique commercial projects including the creation of contemporary arts, retail and learning spaces.

Her work has been recognised nationally, most notably for the interior design of Europe’s smallest 4K cinema, Ilkley Cinema, which saw her win the 2016 Northern Design Award, and she has also featured as an on-screen interior designer for BBC One Daytime.
