David Benz is a founder of Vaughan Benz, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-end custom hotel guestroom and public area furniture.
A California native and a graduate of UCLA film school, David has been in the furniture industry for his entire career. In 1986, he and Scoot Vaughan founded Vaughan Benz, taking over a small cabinet shop catering to wealthy individuals in Los Angeles. They shifted focus to hospitality furniture in the early 1990s and have not looked back!
Starting in 2001, they were a pioneer in manufacturing guestroom furniture under their direct supervision in China. Today, they continue manufacturing suite and public area furniture in their downtown Los Angeles factory, and Vaughan Benz staff in their offices in Shanghai, Vietnam and Mexico oversee the production of 4 and 5-start guestroom furniture manufactured to the same high standards as their one of a kind items that are made in Los Angeles.
