Lars Bolander's Scandinavian Design: Book Signing and Giveaway
I am so honored (and excited!) that Palm Beach and New York-based Swedish designer Lars Bolander will be signing his new book, Scandinavian Design, at MAZE Home Store on Thursday, October 14 from 10 to 5.
This is Lars' only scheduled book tour appearance in the Chicago area so don't miss it!
To celebrate, we're giving away a copy of Lars' book. Read on for more details.
As you may have gathered, I never stop thinking about my design projects and I shop for special pieces, ideas and inspiration wherever I go. Lars' store in Palm Beach has long been my go-to place for interior design when I'm down there. I literally haunt his shop! I love his windows, his merchandising, his products.
So when I met Lars through my aunt who lives in Palm Beach, I had to control my desire to regale him with stories of my love for his store and his design work for fear of looking like a nit!
To say I was thrilled is an understatement, yet to find that he is such a charming, funny, down-to-earth man made my heart sing. Though quintessentially Palm Beach, cultured and worldly, he really is a hoot!
(UPDATE: Just read a wonderful interview with Lars in the Wall Street Journal with photos of his home in Palm Beach.)

I'm so happy to have this opportunity to support someone I've always considered larger than life and I'm looking forward to hosting Lars and his wife, Nadine Kalachnikoff, while they are in Winnetka next week.
I'm also happy to announce a book giveaway! Just go to our Facebook page and leave a comment about Lars Bolander and Scandinavian Design to enter. The winner will be chosen by random drawing on Wednesday, October 13, so you'll have time to get to the store on Thursday to meet Lars and have him sign your copy!
Scandinavian Design is a gorgeous coffee table book (something I just can't get enough of) and I can't stop perusing page after page of stunning interiors. Celebrated designers Bunny Williams, Martha Stewart, Hamish Bowles, David Easton and Juan Pablo Molyneux all love the book (I'll be posting about lunch with Juan Pablo Molyneux at his home in Paris soon!).
If that's not enough to entice you, here are just a few of the beautiful images in the book.
The book has hundreds of luscious photos along with Lars' advice on how to incorporate elements of Scandinavian design into your home.
We hope you can join us for the book signing on October 14. In the meantime, head on over to our Facebook page to enter for a chance to win a copy of Scandinavian Design!
