Bennett Leifer looks so fresh-faced and boyish that it’s hard to believe he’s been in the design business for more than 15 years. Before setting up his own studio in 2013, he spent a full decade soaking up as much knowledge about his craft as he could at multiple top interior design firms. As a child growing up in Great Neck, on Long Island, and in Manhattan, Bennett Leifer was most captivated by the architecture of the fabulous Great Gatsby–era mansions along the North Shore and the many masterworks of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
UPPER WEST SIDE RESIDENCE
Soon after graduating, Bennett Leifer scored a job as assistant to the creative director at Kondylis Design, the bustling interiors branch of Costas Kondylis and Partners (the architecture firm famous for designing high-rises for developers like Donald Trump). Keen to take on larger decorating projects, Bennett Leifer moved to a job at a small, high-end studio specializing in the Art Deco aesthetic, where he would be the only design associate. A year or so later, having honed his decorating skills, he secured a position at Ralph Lauren in store development.
