Sara Bengur is not only a great designer, colorist, and innovator. Most importantly, she is a great big open heart.

For Sara, multiculturalism is more than a design ethos, it's simply her life. Brought up amidst an international milieu in Washington, DC; Istanbul, Turkey; and Maine, her signature love of color and east-meets-west eye are more inborn instinct than acquired aesthetic. Now based in New York City, Sara brings the world home to her clients. Her sensitive design approach takes a genuine interest in the everyday details of her clients' lives, translating their desires into unique homes that are truly their own. 

Since founding Sara Bengur Interiors in 1993, Sara's projects have included residential and retail interiors all over the country, including New York, the Hamptons, Connecticut, Maine, Florida, Montana, and the French West Indies. Her work has been featured in prestigious titles such as Elle DécorThe New York Times, and Architectural Digest. She is also the recipient of numerous design awards, and ranks among House Beautiful's coveted "America's Top 125 Interior Designers."

Over the years, Sara has also dedicated her talents in service of others. Among her philanthropic projects are the Woodycrest House, an apartment building for women with HIV/AIDS and their children, and Marcello Manor, which provides homes for low income domestic violence survivors. Currently, she is working on a collaboration with Anatolian Artisans, a non-profit organization dedicated to serving low-income women artisans and raising awareness about the arts and culture of Turkey.

Clients praise Bengur’s attention to detail, her intelligence and warmth of spirit, and the complete effort she puts into her work. For design that is fresh, lovely and culturally engaged, clients take delight in working with Bengur.
— Franklin Report

Her travels and interest in cultures from around the world added texture, warmth and a unique character to the space, while also incorporating her knowledge and selection of beautiful and special items that made our vacation home a place that is inviting and relaxing for our family and guests. My husband and I were so in love with the work that Sara did in Florida, that we asked her to do the same for our two-bedroom apartment in New York.
— Lynda Shield Greig

You get to the point where you just trust her reflective designs. I never would have picked these colors, but I love them more each day.

I am an architect in NYC and have known and collaborated with Sara Bengur for over 11 years. Her involvement in these projects has resulted in a joyful collaboration that I have found to be intensely creative, professionally respectful and fun.
— Lee H. Skolnick Architecture & Design Partnership

Sara is a joy to work with. She’s respectful to your ideas and budget. Recently redoing a guest bedroom is our second project together. She has not created a room where things are just put in a place but, has created a space where the furnishings are all in a wonderful relationship to each other.
— Client

Sara Bengur is not only a great designer, colorist and innovator but most importantly is a great big open heart. The process of design needs a caring designer, so Sara provides her compassion and bright intelligence to all she does. I highly recommend her after 15 years of cooperation.

I have worked with Sara and her team for 10+ years on high-end residences. They have been a pleasure to work with and bring to the table a very talented and professional interiors firm. Our clients seem to share my opinion that their work is colorful, refined, fun and thoughtful.
