Meet the Talented Collaborators Behind Benjamin Moore and Luxe Interiors + Design’s Faces of Design

NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Benjamin Moore and Luxe Interiors + Design today announced Faces of Design, a multi-channel program celebrating the magic that happens when a brilliant designer works with a best-in-class paint contractor.

The marker of impactful design is an all-important, behind-the-scenes ingredient: collaboration. This is rarely exemplified so well as in the relationship between interior designer and paint contractor. After the designer selects the perfect color to complement architecture, building materials, furnishings, and accessories, the talented paint contractor brings it to fruition with deft hands and a deeply rooted understanding of application techniques, chemical composition, layering, and more. When an interior designer and paint contractor meet in the middle, utilizing a high-performance product, a true marriage of art and science is at work.

In this special section and omni-channel campaign, ten such dynamic duos showcase the perspectives, craftsmanship, and love for hue and tone that they pour into every project.

Said Luxe Interiors + Design Editor in Chief, Pamela Jaccarino, “We are excited to share the distinguished selection of creatives and to celebrate their incredible work that makes every project shine. Benjamin Moore’s commitment to high performance products, professionalism, and innovation is reflected in the visionary work of these duos.”

“The partnership built between an interior designer and painting contractor is key to seamlessly bridging the gap from initial ideation with the homeowner, to reimagining a new design and completing a job with precision,” said Craig Bunting, Director of Customer Segments at Benjamin Moore. “We are proud to introduce a program designed to spotlight the professionals who work together every day to transform the spaces in which we live and work and join Luxe in celebrating their endeavors.”
