Benoit’s Design Co. was derived from an old Maine family business called AH Benoit & Co.. Benoit’s was founded in 1915 in Portland Maine specializing in high quality menswear and later added numerous departments including women’s and sporting equipment. As it grew, AH Benoit & Co. established a deep connection within the New England community and offered multiple shopping locations in Maine and Massachusetts. Benoit’s Design Co. continues to keep the heritage alive by carrying on the legacy of the original Benoit’s. We pride ourselves on creating timeless quality products made for you in the USA.
Who we are
OWNER: Greg Benoit
Greg graduated from Savannah College of Art & Design in 2011 with a degree in Industrial Design. His passion is to produce products that speak to who he is as a designer. He enjoys working with like-minded people to pursue their creative aspirations. He founded Benoit’s Design Co. in 2014. The Benoit name has been an itegral part of the maine community since his great grandfather started, A.H. Benoit & Company. During Greg’s childhood, his grandfather told stories of the Benoit’s Clothing Store and how it was a staple in the Greater Portland community. The goal for Benoit’s Design Co. is to have a similar impact on local lives.
OWNER: Christina Benoit
Christina knew from an early age that the arts and design world was where she wanted to be. An only child of two engineers from a tiny town in Florida, Maine was that last place she saw herself. It was until she met Greg, her now husband and creator of Benoit’s, who showed her the Way Life Should Be. After taking the leap and joining Greg in Maine, she worked as an interior designer at a few commercial and residential design firms in the Portland area. In 2018 Christina joined Greg at Benoit’s Design Co. as Design Director. If you don’t find her working in the studio, she can be found boating around Casco Bay, off on a crafting weekend, or out in the garden tending to her flowers or produce.
