Barrie Benson Interior Design

BARRIE BENSON is a Charlotte-based interior designer best known for balancing the modern with the traditional in her signature interiors. She transforms residences like her iconic 1950s ranch with traditional pieces to create an interesting blend of periods, rooms, and moods.

The puppy brothers, Merle and Kobe, get their Facetime out of the way first.

“I would say that customizing furniture and homes for lifestyle are my main focus.”

The Dominique de Menil House

One of Barrie's favorite spaces: The Dominique De Menil house in Houston. The modernist Johnson structure was home for five decades to not only the ever-expanding stash or art the de Menils collected, but also to the couple and their five children.

When you mix old pieces with the modern, you have a look that's fresh and young and one that tells your story.

- Designer Barrie Benson

Barrie designed the much loved fashion destination "Capitol" in Charlotte. Her design was influenced by Jean Michel Frank as evident in the inverse panel used on the walls in the boutique.
