Designer Uma Stewart has gained a following for her signature approach to interior design. Coined “low-key luxury for the cultured life” this style perfectly captures the modern desire to live both the good life, as well as a life less ordinary. Every project is guided by a fundamental vision of light, space, and clean lines. This then becomes the canvas for just the right mix of casual and dressed up furnishings, décor, and objects of personal expression to result in a space that is livable and worldly all at once.
Uma founded Furbish Home in 2006 to offer an inspiring showroom environment to the public, while continuing to work on a broad range of design projects with individual clients. In 2010, Uma launched an eponymous boutique firm, Uma Stewart Interior Design, to offer the highest level of creativity and service to her growing design clientele.
Uma’s design work and showroom have been featured in New Jersey Monthly, New Jersey Life, Domino, New Jersey Jewish News, and Millburn Short Hills Magazine. Uma’s blog, Designing the Life, is widely read by design enthusiasts and professionals alike. In it Uma explores everything design, but also weighs in on the other passions in her life: writing, family, travel, art and photography, food and wine, and more.
Before launching Uma Stewart Interior Design and Furbish Home, 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 graduate work in communications and culture.
