SANDRA BENHAMOU

SANDRA BENHAMOU FOUNDED HER AGENCY IN PARIS IN 2010 AFTER AN INITIAL CAREER IN CINEMA. FROM HER PASSION FOR THE 7TH ART, SHE KEPT A SHARP SENSE FOR STAGING AND THE ART OF CONNECTING OBJECTS, STYLES AND ERAS. SANDRA BENHAMOU CREATES CULTIVATED INTERIORS WHERE CONTEMPORARY ART AND DESIGN, VINTAGE FURNITURE AND UNIQUE ITEMS COME TOGETHER.

As a collector and an expert in the art market, her well-informed eye helps her emphasize the works, with curiosity and accuracy, avoiding a museum-like appearance. Thus, furniture from the 1970s may stand alongside contemporary photography and works by Italian artists like Gio Ponti and Carlo Scarpa, who Sandra Benhamou greatly admires. This attention given to objects, through the blend of influences and trends, provides a unique and contrarian narrative to the interiors created by this self-taught woman, whether it is a luxury Parisian apartment or a house in Normandy. The transformation of the former Dinard aquarium into Le Castelbrac 5-star hotel, the concept of Les Dunes eco-chic campsite in Torreilles, the Marcel burger bar in Brussels, and the Le Belloy hotel in Saint-Germain-des-Prés are proof of the interior designer’s freedom of expression and her beautiful ability to adapt. High-end public or residential projects, Sandra Benhamou thoroughly and rigorously creates eclectic ambiances, interspersed with an ounce of femininity where light plays a main part. She breaks the codes with an uncomplicated instinctiveness, is fond of a contrasted interplay of materials and draws her inspiration from history in order to reveal the aura of a place. Sandra Benhamou is committed to adding the finishing touch to each line in the screenplay with a great sense of detail, distilling her talents as a decorator/interior designer in favour of refined and expressive universes.
