Emotional Rooms - BNO Design

Aging of the white oak wood paneling produced a silvery gray finish similar to that of driftwood. Christophe and his team worked closely with the designer Benjamin Noriega Ortiz to translate the soothing atmosphere that he wanted this Park Avenue apartment to convey. Related finishes were also brought to the fireplace mantel, the Coffee Table in the living room. Additional work included the restoration and refinishing of many antique furniture used for the apartment.

Benjamin Noriega Ortiz was still the Head of John Saladino Design team when John discovered Christophe and his unique ability to translate a sense of history and time in wood finishes.


"I have always admired Benjamin’s talent in finding the most beautiful colors and designs in the most inconspicuous places and objects…. In bringing them to you and asking you to reproduce them for a project or an interior.” says Christophe.
