Pantelleria Designs is a full service creative decorative painting business begun in 1994 in San Francisco and now based in Los Angeles. After years as a working fine artist www.benjunta.com , I decided to combine my love of the art world with my love of the interior design world, and thus Pantelleria Designs came into being. In this way, I can combine my love of paint and color, and my love of architecture and interior design, in order to give clients, both residential and commercial, both big and small, interior spaces that they love to live and work in. I have worked with both small and large clients, collaborated on city murals (Palo Alto, CA) , made presentations to CEO's as well as local ASID chapters, architectural review boards, city councils, and private residential clients.
I work with designers from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Locally, I enjoy a collaborative relationship with Maison Luxe in Hermosa Beach, and am always looking for new designers to collaborate with.
The name Pantelleria comes from an island in the Mediterranean, off the coast of Italy. It is a beautiful location, a place to relax, and a place to let your soul free. In the spirit of this magical place, Pantelleria Designs offers full service decorative painting, with an infinite variety of decorative paint finishes, venetian plasters, cabinet refinishing, murals, and anything your creativity allows you to see. Owner, Ben Junta is a member of the National Society of Decorative Painters.
A strong believer in the concept of "home as sanctuary," I believe the proper use of color and texture within the home environment profoundly affects the well being of those within. I collaborate on projects with interior designers, private residents, architects, and contractors. My projects, both residential and commercial, range from the simple one or two room jobs, to restaurants, and to large full scale designs, both remodels, and new builds.
