The New York Design Center was the place to be last night! The What’s New, What’s Next event was a success! I was enchanted in the lovely lap of Laserow, where I met fellow bloggers and got a crash course in Swedish antiques. Founder, Karin Laserow showed me around the showroom pointing out each piece and what period it was from (they focus on Rococo, Gustavian, Empire and Baroque periods), and they quizzed me at the end! Karin has been in the business for 32 years, and her daughter Liza runs the New York Showroom at the NYDC. After sitting with them for only a few minutes, it was evident that they are passionate about this business. I was fascinated by their down to earth perspective on antiques, the chairs must be comfortable and you must be able to live your daily life with these pieces. The way they mix the antique furniture with modern upholstery was refreshing.
I look forward to seeing the outcome of some of Liza’s Interior Design projects she is working on now!
I was amazed by all of the beautiful/industrial lighting options!
