CHIC BESPOKE FURNITURE WITH A HOMELY TOUCH

What were Benington’s origins?
After many years of cooperation with Sia Home Fashion – we have run five Sia stores in Stockholm – I chose to start my own brand, Benington.

Where does the name Benington come from?
The name came to my head after a visit, for personal reasons, to St Peter’s Church in Benington (about 40 kilometres north of London). After that, I couldn’t erase the name from my head, so I let my brand be Benington.

 

 

 

What can clients expect when they visit your showroom on the Golden Mile?
Our goal is for clients, when they step into the showroom, to feel at home. For everyone who visits us to become inspired to make some changes or
improvements to their home. So we say to all clients when they arrive, “Welcome to Benington – welcome home”.


Can you tell us more about your products?
Our products are divided into three groups:
1. The upholstered furniture is of a high quality, with every piece carefully hand-made in Europe (Sweden, Spain, Portugal and Poland). In this category we offer clients numerous options to choose fabrics from leading producers including Mullbery, Kravet, Harlequin, Kobe, Jonathan Adler, Zimmer + Rohde, Nina Campbell, Osborne and Little, Morris and others. The flexibility to change fabrics and sizes for sofas or tables is one of our basic ideas and concepts. We are the ones who have to adapt to the customer – not the other way around.
2. The metal and wood furniture is all made exclusively for Benington in limited editions, never more than 15 pieces of each one.
3. Then we have items from carefully chosen brands such as Jonathan Adler, Buster + Punch, Orrefors and Georg Jensen – with more coming.

 

 

 

Can you also design furniture to your clients’ requirements and
preferences?
Certainly… in fact , I design most of my furniture items. and that’s why you can only find our furniture at Benington.
