This past Saturday, I had the pleasure to attend a book signing for designer extraordinaire, Lars Bolander and his new book, Scandinavian Design. Written along with former House Beautiful editor Heather Smith MacIsaac, Scandinavian Design is a thoughtful and sophisticated work, giving readers an in-depth survey of the best of this celebrated genre. Bolander draws on his extensive design experience and vast historical knowledge to bring readers inspiring interiors and design, both traditional and modern.
I was delighted to meet Lars, whose light and airy classic Gustavian interiors I've admired for quite some time. The book signing took place at Nancy Corzine's beautiful shop in Southampton amongst a soft palette of upholstered furniture and antiques-the perfect spot! I was interested to learn that Scandanavian Design took over three years to research and write; a real labor of love for the designer. The book is laid-out in a thoughtful, progressive manner, beginning with exterior features such as elaborate doorways and entryways and takes the reader through the interior of the home room by room with beautiful classical and modern looks in Scandinavian design. Publshed by Vendome Press, it's a lovely read and must-have reference and inspiration guide for any design library.
Visit tomorrow for more Scandinavian Design and a fall giveaway!
