MAZE Home Store in Winnetka will welcome renowned Swedish interior designer Lars Bolander for a book signing event this Thursday from 10 to 5, celebrating his recently published second book, Scandinavian Design. Home decor enthusiasts are invited to explore the unique style of Lars’ exceptional interior designs. Be sure to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity, as this special occasion will be Lars’ only tour appearance in Chicago.
With a strongly original sense of style, Lars began his education at the Stockholm School of Art before learning directly from Carl Malmsten, the prominent creator of Scandinavian Design. As his passion for interior design began to flourish, Lars studied under Gaby Schreiber before working many years for Gunter Sachs. With experience developing designs internationally, Lars, along with his wife Nadine Kalachnikoff, started a retail antique business in East Hampton, New York in 1987. Now with two locations – in New York and Palm Beach, Florida – Lars’ interior design business continues to thrive.
Catering to affluent clients around the world, Lars’ style is at once sophisticated and diverse. Inspired by Scandinavian influences, his work often emphasizes well-defined lines, subtle color themes, naturally-lit places, and pure materials. Written with former House & Garden magazine editor Heather Smith MacIsaac, his book is a compilation of distinctive and graceful Scandinavian home design ideas. Whether you’re looking to redecorate an entire room or to simply integrate a few Scandinavian elements into your home, the book features expert advice on how to revamp your decor.
