Leslie Hindman Auctioneers: The Private Collection of Lars Bolander

West Palm Beach
Mar 13, 2015 — Mar 20, 2015

Lars Bolander is one of Sweden’s foremost interior designers and a pioneer of Swedish design in the United States. Influenced by his diverse education and experiences, Mr. Bolander has developed a unique style all his own that has both a theatrical side and love of simplicity. After many years of having a showroom on “Antique Row” in West Palm Beach, Mr. Bolander has decided to sell his nearby home, Bamboo Hill, and personal treasures in order to establish residence elsewhere.

 

His personal collection is both coherent and varied, classic and fun. It includes traditional Swedish forms such as Gustavian chairs, a Gustavian settee and works by Swedish artist Dan Nygard. At the same time, much of his collection was amassed through worldwide travel and exploration. Many objects were found in unique locations with intriguing backgrounds and interesting stories.

 

His European aesthetic is exemplified by a variety of furniture, decorative arts and works of art, evident in such objects as an unusual pair of terracotta busts of Moorish gentlemen and François Gall paintings. Whimsical items inspired by a designer’s eye include architectural trompe l’oeil furniture and the signature silvered brass ram heads used in Mr. Bolander’s personal logo.
