Acclaimed interior designer Lars Bolander has brought his signature eclectic elegance to Connecticut with a newly opened shop at 1300 Post Road East in Westport. The creative and artistic scene and varied cultural vibe of the town were an easy draw for Bolander, as was its proximity to New York City. The 2,600-square-foot space encapsulates the vision of accessible grandeur Bolander had for the shop and features both indoor and outdoor space.
The shop offers a mix of contemporary furniture, textiles and decorative accessories from all over the world; the melding of different arts is a signature of Bolander’s work. Umbrellas from Bali, Thai elephant stands, Chinese lacquered pieces and rugs from Indonesia all sit in harmony among Austrian modern furniture, French columns and Italian paintings. A mix of 19th-century Scandinavian and other European antiques will also be featured alongside Swedish pieces, both Gustavian and modern. Bolander commissions various painters, printmakers and sculptors for works and offers custom designs.
