Francis Sultana

Crossing various creative fields with equal vigour, Francis Sultana is an interior designer, furniture designer and design adviser. He’s also an enthusiastic speaker on design trends and curation. For his many discerning art-world clients, he creates high-octane interiors laced with colour and luxury, and dispenses expert advice on showcasing or commissioning contemporary art. ‘I take clients on a creative journey, conceiving a sophisticated interior of today,’ he says.


Francis was the creative director of David Gill Galleries before setting up his own practice in 2011. He has designed four of his own furniture collections; the latest, Celia, was released in spring 2015. When Francis is not globe-trotting, he returns to his Fulham Road design studio/showroom, where, he says, ‘we are a happy team of seven’. In 2014 he took on the additional role of artistic director at David Gill Galleries.


Francis’s international project list includes a grand Kensington apartment, a holiday home in Aspen, a 60-metre yacht, a period mansion in Westminster, an apartment in Monte Carlo and a palazzo in Malta. Recent commercial projects include the Grand Hotel Sofia in Bulgaria, David Gill Galleries in Mayfair and the Armorial boutique at Thomas Goode in Mayfair.
