About John Berenson
A graduate of Boston University and Fashion Institute of Technology, John Berenson worked for nationally renown and published interior designer Bebe Winkler in New York.
After re-locating to Miami, he became a partner in the firm “Lapin-Raffa-Berenson” which won Designer of the Year 1983 granted by the IDG (Interior Designer’s Guild of South Florida). This was his first nationally published work by Interior Design Magazine. They went on to be published in other regional publications for residential work in Florida Designer’s Quarterly, Design South, and Haute Décor, and Architectural Digest to name a few.
After a career of almost 20 years based in South Florida and missing Boston, John was easily “coerced” back to New England to be close to his ever increasing client base in the Boston area. Working out of his Boston office full-time has made it easier to work between Boston, The Cape & Islands along with some loyal long time clients in New York.
Several years ago a large commission enabled John to spend four years traveling between Boston and Paris working on reproducing “a Hotel Particulier”. This was an incredible once-in-a-lifetime learning experience which enabled him to purchase and understand true French antiques and interiors.
“I have learned so much from the French way of life, there is a certain sense of timeless elegance and beauty in everything they do. Whether it be in their architecture and design, or just in the way they wrap up a single item in a market or bakery… I’m always amazed. Each time I go back it feels just like the first.”
Among the list of long time clientele and their children are some of Boston’s most humble philanthropists who have given John the freedom to design and successfully bring to fruition their dreams creating beautiful and comfortable interiors.
