The Uber Talented Benjamin Dhong

Recently I stumbled upon the talented San Francisco based interior designer Benjamin Dhong --   you have seen his spaces even if you don't know his name.  Benjamin has terrific style and an even more interesting story.   During a 2004 trip to Italy to celebrate a friend’s 40th birthday, he befriended designer Martha Angus.  The two bonded over a shared love of art and design and before he knew, it Martha invited him to apprentice at her firm.  Three years later, in 2007, Benjamin set out on his own.
He describes his time with Martha Angus as the equivalent to a graduate course in design (his past life was in finance) and I have to say, nothing beats the hands on training you get working for a busy and talented mentor.  I doesn't hurt that Benjamin has an amazing eye and a natural ability to seamlessly blend the old and new as well as classic and contemporary.  The photos below are from his portfolio.
