Swedish and French antiques and home furnishings set in a warehouse space.. The Scene The store's namesake owner, Lars Bolander, studied at the Stockholm School of Art and worked under notable designers Carl Malmsten and Gaby Schreiber. His extensive training and his eye for truly collectible pieces are apparent in his Meatpacking District store. With its cement floor, noticably high ceilings and vast array of items, the showroom has a somewhat unfinished, incohesive feel. But because the goods incorporate such varying styles and extensive periods of time, perhaps the hodgepodge effect makes sense.
The Goods The collection of merchandise focuses primarily on Swedish and French antiques of the 17th and 18th centuries, but newer decorating books and 20th century English pieces are available as well. Linens fill a shelving unit on the left, while soft, decorative pillows garnish the shop's couches. The shop also sells statues, clocks, tables, lamps and other home furnishings.
