Larry Laslo is an interior designer who decamped from a triplex on Manhattan’s Upper East Side to a charming cottage in Palm Beach, Florida. His new home, he quips, is “like living in Tahiti, with a Chanel shop six blocks away.”
Laslo, who first came to the world’s attention with his dazzling transformation of Bergdorf Goodman in the 1980s, now attracts a sophisticated international clientele that appreciates his passion for traditional styles and his talent for adapting those styles to the present.
Larry R. Laslo is known in the design world as an inveterate arbiter of style creating legendary interior landscapes. Multi-talented, multi-faceted, multi-directional — Larry Laslo takes his inspiration from the world around him and translates these surroundings into a new definition of “livable contemporary.” For Laslo, contemporary means “timeless.”
Laslo has designed brilliant interiors that have graced the editorial pages of Architectural Digest, The New York Times, House & Garden, Vogue, Elle Décor, Vanity Fair, Town & Country, Veranda and W; while his Manhattan home was featured in Elle Décor and HGTV’s Top 10 Living Rooms. He is recognized in New York City for the interior design of Takashimaya’s flagship store on Fifth Avenue and the highly regarded look and feel of Bergdorf Goodman, in addition to the one-of-a-kind homes he designs throughout the country. Laslo was also given the distinct honor to design and install the East meets West Hanae Mori exhibit at Art Tower Mito in Japan.
