Holmström, Lars

(1894 - 1959)

Lars August Holmström was a Swedish craftsman and designer. He came from a family of blacksmiths and was trained in his father's workshop. In 1921 he started his own workshop in Arvika. Holmström made lamps and other objects for several churches and, for instance, gates for secular buildings. He showed his designs at the Exposition internationale des arts décoratifs et industriels modernes in Paris, 1925.

Bloomberry is an antiques dealer specialized in exquisite twentieth century design, founded in 2005 by Patricia Keurentjes and Leander Meerman. Our strength is that we read the past differently and do have a keen eye for yet little known masterpieces. Our company is housed in a former textile factory that spans 5.000 square meters. It is located just near Maastricht, in the south of the Netherlands, within two hours from Amsterdam, Bruxelles and Cologne. Only part of the collection is shown on the website. A visit -  by appointment only - gives you the full insight.
