This summer, take a trip into Lars Bolander’s Post Road shop and escape into the Swedish interior designer’s expertly curated world. Styled vignettes include unique Gustavian furnishings, 18-century antiques, and an edit of collected treasures from around the globe that you won’t find anywhere else. (We’re partial to the groupings of hand-carved wooden mushrooms, available in a variety of sizes.)
His finds look just as good outside, too. Take the Brussels-based line, Astello by Thierry Massant, which includes outdoor pieces crafted from revived historic forms. Bolander carries the range of teak chairs, tables, chaises and benches in Regency and Louis XV silhouettes (think curved legs, lattice-backed frames, intricate openwork carving and caning), elegant upgrades to any patio or poolside spot. Upholstered cushions are available for each chair and sofa for extra comfort and all pieces can be oil finished for a more matte look. The result is a more refined, French feminine alternative to the heavy modern lines offered elsewhere.
