    The Bogelund-Jensen Atelier


    The Bogelund-Jensen style is artistry, in her atelier Signe creates and develops all her ideas.

    “When I have created something, it will be clean, serene and simple to look at.

    When I’m done – It’s satisfaction beyond time”  Signe Bøgelund Jensen

    The collection is pieces of artwork where various gateways are inverted so history and modernity combines into creating a sense of subversion. Under the surface it embers with artistic and intellectual creativity in a quiet rebellious way.

    “Wear it as your self and/or rip it, reverse it, make it your own, choose your own accessories to create further on it. But in the beginning, all the dresses were the same.”

    On June 26, 2009, 150 guests gathered in Pakhus 11 in Copenhagen, Denmark, for an unusual party and red carpet photography of all guests. All female guests wearing the same designer dress by Atelier Bøgelund-Jensen.

    Liana Yaroslavsky’s Charming French Atelier


    More Liana infatuation! Enjoy this re-posting featuring the artist’s atelier from Swell City Guide.

    Liana fondly refers to her atelier as her “little nest.”

    It is a warm, tranquil and inspiring place where she is able to channel her inner peace

    and deeply connect with her artistic ideas and creativity.

    High ceilings, white walls and parquet flooring the color of honey create a haven where she can escape and tend to her creations undisturbed. Only the sun peaks in through large windows, its rays reflecting off of floor-length mirrors and elegant crystal chandeliers that bathe the atelier in peace, clarity and light.

    The spacious, 105m² workspace also doubles as Liana’s showroom where admirers and the curious can gather to view her exclusive table creations. Her extraordinary collection is unlike any other, as novelties like glass baubles, crystal bubbles and entire chandeliers are somehow magically encased in a transparent veil of glass. Once inside Liana’s atelier, the connection between its luminous character and her ingenious table collection is revealed.

    And here is an excerpt from Design Ties that captures Liana’s compelling and fascinating life story.

    Liana was born in Leningrad and lived a young life filled with art, music, and end evenings at the Kirov Ballet. Her grandfather played the piano, her grandmother painted waterclours, and her father was an art book editor.

    When Liana turned 9, she and her mother emigrated to Israel, leaving her father and grandmother behind in Russia. Ten years later, Liana did military service, going for 4:00AM runs and learning how to use weapons. And at the same time, she was taking dance and art classes and becoming a model. By the age of 20, she had been married and divorced. Before taking a divorce, consider visiting the page of divorced at 30 to know the considerations in that matter.

    She left Israel to go to New York with a film director. She learned sculpting, painting, and graphic design at Parsons School of Design and joined the largest graphic arts studio in New York City after graduating. Then she promptly quit to marry a Frenchman and move to Paris. She became the artistic director at a graphic design agency there, and eventually created her own studio. And then as she wondered if someone would discover her, she discovered herself.

    Liana had a Murano chandelier she had fallen in love with, but she didn’t know what to do with it. One day, she decided to change her coffee table. She took the chandelier, turned it upside down, spread out the branches like flowers on a bed of 19th century watercolours, and put it all into a plexiglass cube. It was Liana’s first creation, and the start of the realization of her dream to create art.
