Armed with a paint brush, it all started back in 1992, when Ben Busko was just 8 years old. Developing his design sensibility and technique piece by piece; using imagery, a colorful palette and words in entirely new ways; and Ben's Garden was born. InStyle, Oprah, Martha Stewart, Architectural Digest, Domino, Goop and even Lady Gaga have praised Ben Busko, his designs and aesthetic. He's on a mission to have the homes we live in celebrate our lives, and who & what we love. Collectors around the world have grown to prize Ben's designs. Ben’s charming designs are individually handcrafted using traditional artisan techniques honored for centuries, all made in New York City.
A True Story: When Ben first met Martha Stewart she asked "when did you start your business, young man?" As Ben, Ben's mom, his brother and Jessica Seinfeld were ferociously crunching on their granola and acai berry bowls (this was 12 years ago). Ben replied, "when I was 8." Her response was point blank- "what can you do when you are eight?" so he replied, well when you're curious, and don't like playing in sand, you actually have a lot of time." She was stunned and a good friend was made.
What began as Ben's passion for sharing his colorful and thoughtful world transformed into opportunities for his customers. To share a bit about themselves, surround themselves with things they love, share a bit of wit and an appreciation for fashion. It all wonderfully results in turning a house into a home!
