Welcome to fall

After a summer break I'm back to blogging on our daily activities at Bolon by VIIIR. It has been an amazingly beautiful and actually very busy summer for us. Together with Angeline and Anthony, part of our team since the very beginning, we closed summer with an appreciation day trip in the inspiring surroundings of upstate New York. Lot's of great conversations on the future of our company and how to build further on the success story of Bolon in North America.

Another feature in Floor Focus Magazine

We are truly excited about our profile in the July issue of Floor Focus, which was primarily devoted to a roundup of this year's NeoCon.  The profile was a result of a conversation with the editor in which we were able to  talk to her about Bolon in general, our new collections and colors, and about the trends we have seen so far this year.  We especially love that she included the link we have seen with the new colors in our Now Collection and the spring collections of fashion lines, particularly Louis Vuitton, which we wrote about in our April 17th post titled Trendsetting.

MetroCon Dallas 2014

We love it when our regional sales agents are active in their local trade shows.  Take a look at Bolon in use in the Bost, Inc. booth at MetroCon Dallas last week.  We love how Bill Bost, founder and principal of Bost, Inc., replicated our national NeoCon booth so that the architects and designers from Texas and Oklahoma who couldn't make it to Chicago could experience our Studio Planks up close and personal.

AOL's North American Headquarters

We are so excited about our installation in AOL's North American headquarter in Boston that we couldn't wait to it be be complete to share images.  Look how Karen Bala of Dyer Brown & Associates is using our Missoni Bayadere Turquoise to lend an air of whimsy and leisure to a corporate space.   

AOL's office is located in the original Filene's Department Store building.  If you look closely, you will notice that the wallpaper is actually made up of Filene's newspaper ads from the 1950s.  What a creative job this installation is.  We can't wait to share the images of the completed project!

DIFFA's Picnic by Design

Last night we had the pleasure of both sponsoring DIFFA's Picnic by Design and purchasing a designer's picnic basket.  I was able to dine on Danielle Colding's masterpiece, surrounded by nearly 30 other picnic baskets - each highlighting the designer's interpretation of a picnic.  How amazing it was to be surrounded by so much creativity and beauty.  

DIFFA, once again, threw a spot-on and stellar event where the cocktails were perfectly matched with shucked-to-order oysters.  Can't wait for the holiday Thanks by Giving event in November!

Summer is an amazing time of the year and New York can be surprisingly “dépaysant”, French for “an experience that brings you to a completely different world”.

I went from Asia to Italy all in upstate New York, and all in one weekend.  How amazing the simple things in life can be…

Lebuïnuskerk Church Loves Bolon's Create Collection

It is a perfect, sunny and crisp summer Friday in New York City.  Days like today get our creative juices flowing and in which we find inspiration on every corner.  In keeping with that creative and innovative feeling we have today, we wanted to share with you a brilliant a completely outside-the-box use of our flooring: in a church in Deventer, Netherlands.  
Lebuïnuskerk is a church that originates from the Gothic period, built between 1450 and 1525. In the church's latest renovation Van Hoogevest Architecten - an office with a broad knowledge in historic architecture and renovation with among others Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam as a client - choose Bolon Studio Triangles Create Pario for the floor, a collage surface that captures the light in a stunning way.  We loved how they took advantage of the unique light reflecting quality of the Create line to get an effect that looks like more than one pattern, while using just one pattern.   Using innovative design techniques for an innovative project is a prime example of capitalizing on creative juices!
