Uma Stewart Interiors and Lifestyle is a design studio based in the greater New York region. Studio services include design-build, art buying, and interior design. Led by designer Uma Stewart, the studio’s look is streamlined eclecticism, and seeks to represent a diversity of styles, interests, and personal histories of the clients we work with.
Often described as authentic and honest, Uma carries that sensibility to each project and seeks to create spaces as unique as the environments around them and the individuals living in them. Her curiosity extends to art, history, and a well-read, well-traveled outlook on life. Uma consistently turns to new currents in American design, classic English interiors, and her parents' birthplace of India for inspiration.
Uma is recognized as a designer whose work is both innovative and can stand the test of time. Redbook magazine defined Uma as a designer who can "design a home you'll love forever." Luxe Magazine named Uma one of the design industry's "Game Changers" in 2018. Her work is both timeless and current, and it is this quality Uma's clients love best about the spaces she creates for them.
Before launching her design business, Uma worked as an acquisitions editor in book publishing and as a photo editor for a women’s fashion magazine. She studied design at Parsons and NYU, and has done Ph.D. work in communications and culture at the University of Illinois. Her broad intellectual background continues to inform her design work.
