‘Brexit uncertainty is killing my business’, designer warns MP

Susie Rumbold, managing director of Tessuto Interiors

Brexit indecision worse than Brexit itself, says MD of architectural interiors firm

The managing director of a London-based architecture business has said it will go to the wall in a matter of weeks if uncertainty over the UK’s future relationship with the European Union is not resolved.

In an impassioned plea to former Treasury minister Greg Hands – who represents London’s Chelsea & Fulham constituency – Susie Rumbold said Hands and his fellow MPs needed to understand the severity of the problem.

Rumbold who runs Tessuto Interiors in Fulham, told Conservative Hands she believed her 26-year-old architectural interior design company would be out of business within three months if the uncertainty over the UK’s future relationship with the EU was not resolved.
