About us

Raoul & Julien Benassaya

Classic Design was established in 1986 by Raoul Benassaya, and has grown into one of the most sought after custom design and upholstery services in the country. We incorporate the high quality of traditional upholstery methods with modern design, and pride ourselves on attention to the most specific detail, focusing on precision in every cut, and using only the best quality materials to ensure the most comfortable seat and the most aesthetic look. 

We perform a wide range of services, including custom furniture and accessories, wall upholstery and window treatments, as well as the restoration and repair for all residential and commercial spaces. Classic Design specializes in the restoration and repair of classic mid-century modern pieces such as Herman Miller, Mies Van Der Rohe, George Nelson, Eames, Knoll, Bertoia, Platner and Wegner. 

Unlike most furniture and design companies, all of our products are designed, engineered, handcrafted and manufactured at our location in Torrance, California. Our on-site manufacturing workshop features a group of over 20 dedicated and skilled artisans, as well as state-of-the-art equipment and technology.
