Benjamin Johnston creates classic, cool spaces that take inspiration from a variety of cultures and time periods, blending new and vintage pieces to create contemporary spaces that feel curated over a lifetime. He accomplishes this tasteful mix while adhering to the classic design principles of balance and simplicity, through the application of clean lines and tailored details—timeless sensibilities he credits to his previous study and practice of architecture.
He often utilizes tone-on-tone palettes to create a harmonious balance and then punctuates them with unexpected moments to delight and surprise. Each of Ben's
distinctive spaces operates beyond pure function to create a desired mood and ambiance, while still embodying his unmistakable sense of style.
