About Us

Mandy Cuss + Co. Design is a Sussex-based interior design and architecture studio that specialises in creating characterful, one-of-a-kind interiors designed for living well.  We provide the structure and discipline around which a successful design project is developed and executed while creating spaces with personality, energy, and warmth.  

An American ex-pat, Mandy is the lead designer on all projects, ensuring each touchpoint is efficient and effective and that the outcome is expertly-aligned with each client's objectives.  Mandy's professional career began in New England designing historic homes on the coast of Maine and award-winning independent restaurants.  Upon moving her family to the UK, Mandy honed her skills in crafting luxurious suites at Claridge's and her sister hotels, later launching Mandy Cuss + Co. in 2019 to bring her thoughtful design to discerning clientele throughout the southeast and beyond.

How would you describe your style?

"We’re very much a client-led studio and like our work to reflect the setting, architecture, and desires of the individual. That said, there are threads that run through. We’re passionate about relaxed, easy, authentic interiors that nurture, replenish, and inspire all at once. We love mixing old with new, incorporating natural materials, thoughtfully-crafted items, and the delicate balancing of colour, light, and texture to create just the right mood."

"We recently transformed a new build property that was having an identity crisis into a layered, characterful family home reflective of the family’s story and lifestyle. Key to the brief was to ensure the open-plan ground floor flowed harmoniously while being visually zoned for its various purposes. We provided a much-needed dose of characterisation, customising the home with bespoke joinery, panelling, colour work, and clever space planning to create a home that feels grounded and full of personality."
