On Saturday, March 21, 2015, Leslie Hindman Auctioneers will offer fine art, furniture, and decorative objects from Lars Bolander’s private collection. One of Sweden’s foremost interior designers, Bolander is also a leading design figure stateside. Influenced by his diverse background, Scandinavian heritage, and extensive travels, Bolander has developed a singular style that celebrates simplicity as well as theatricality. From mountaintop cottages to Caribbean homes, Bolander’s designs deftly blend ideas and geographic styles, making him a favorite among international clientele.

Bolander’s fascination with design, particularly furniture, was solidified during his early education at the Stockholm School of Art and continued to flourish under the tutelage of the legendary Swedish designer Carl Malmsten.

As established and start-up companies alike jump in the race to serve online auction bidders, several regional auction houses have announced a new platform. Bidsquare was developed by six houses—Brunk Auctions, Cowan’s Auctions, Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Pook & Pook, Rago, and Skinner—with the aim of bringing together “like-minded audiences as well as exceptional property.” The new platform will provide access to a wide variety of property, from fine art and estate jewelry, to design, and historical artifacts. Lots will be available on an “intuitive, easy-to-use website” that will allow buyers and the auctioneers to conduct business directly in an online forum, according to a Bidsquare press release.
