Hello! My name is Susie, and I’m the founder of Studio Stanway, a creative upholstery workshop in Wendover, Buckinghamshire.  I offer bespoke furniture design, a growing collection of home accessories, all designed & made by me, and re-upholstery work. 

After 20 years working in fashion marketing I retrained in the AMUSF 3 stage upholstery diploma, gaining a Distinction.


Since then I have undertaken the School of Upholstered Furniture's Advanced Traditional Diploma, the only course in the UK to be accredited by the Guild of Traditional Upholsterers, again being awarded a Distinction for a chair I designed and built from the timber up. 


I have also joined the Guild as a Journeyman member after submitting a portfolio of my independent traditional work. 

Fabric sourcing is included within my quotes as a free of charge service and whilst based in the Chiltern hills I work throughout Bucks, Oxfordshire & London.
