A native New Yorker, Bennett Leifer is an up-and-coming design talent whose timeless, elegant interiors reveal a deep appreciation of the decorative arts. An alum of both Ralph Lauren and Robert A.M. Stern Architects, Leifer opened his eponymous studio in 2013. Today, he creates bespoke residences for clients around the world. In the past two years, Leifer's work has garnered notices in Architectural Digest, House Beautiful and Forbes. Most recently, he created a gilded, De Gournay-covered lounge space for the 2015 Kips Bay Decorator Show House in New York City. This week, we asked the young designer to handpick his favorite items from 1stdibs. More
