NATURE

“Every room needs a touch of nature. Here, the wall of windows helps the backyard become an extension of the bedroom. Having that flood of natural light allowed me to go tailored and moody to quiet down the space.”

BALANCING ACT

“I try to strike that balance where if you add one more element it becomes too much, and if you take one away it feels underdone. Although at first glance some might say this is a masculine room, I believe there’s a play on texture, softness, and luxury that women respond to as well.”

DESIGN INSPIRATION

“My furniture collection for Chaddock is inspired by classical forms interpreted through a mid-century lens. The eight-poster bed with double columns is my ode to Italian architect Andrea Palladio.”

RAISING THE BAR

“The verticality of the room calls for pieces to lift the eye, such as my ‘Adriano’ bar with door detailing that evokes an apothecary cabinet.”

TO THE TOUCH

“Texture is incredibly important to my work. I like the juxtaposition of matte surfaces, such as wood finishes, with more luxurious ones and even a little shimmer in textiles.” In Benjamin’s own fabric and trim collection for S. Harris, he incorporates his many influences, from ancient motifs such as the Greek key to Art Deco to mid-century modern.”

DREAMING IN BLACK AND WHITE

“I find comfort in order, so my gallery wall is very structured. The Rodney Smith photographs are dream-like, which seems right for a bedroom. They hang within a series of panels we created with ribbon atop the Stroheim grass cloth.”
