Ben's Garden: It all started back in 1992, when Ben Busko was just 8 years old, selling decoupage inspired by his garden. Armed with a paint brush, Ben developed his design sensibility and technique piece by piece; using imagery, a colorful palette and words in entirely new ways; and BEN'S GARDEN was born. Ben’s charming designs are individually handcrafted using traditional artisan techniques honored for centuries, exclusively & entirely by hand in New York City. His ever-expanding collection includes coasters, magnets, French crystal paperweights, photo frames, framed artwork, greeting cards and his celebrated decoupage glass trays and platters. What began as Ben's passion for sharing his colorful and thoughtful world transformed into opportunities for his customers. To share a bit about themselves, surround themselves with things they love, share a bit of wit and an appreciation for fashion. It all wonderfully results in turning a house into a home! Ben Busko has demonstrated his decoupage technique to Martha Stewart on her MARTHA Television Show, had his design selected as an Oprah “O-List Must-Have" product, been featured on NBC's The Today Show and his designs have been featured in a number of prominent periodicals including House Beautiful, InStyle, Martha Stewart Living and Architectural Digest. Collectors around the world have grown to prize Ben's designs.
