Blakeney To Host Book Signing in Loloi Vegas Showroom
Loloi’s newest licensed partner, Justina Blakeney, will be signing copies of her New York Times best-selling book, The New Bohemians, at Las Vegas Market. The book signing will take place from 3:45- 4:45 p.m., Jan. 26 in Loloi’s Showroom, Building B #480, and the first 100 registered buyers will receive a free signed hardcover copy of the book. The event will prominently display Blakeney’s two new rug collections, Folklore and Fable, and new pillow designs for Loloi. Cocktails and appetizers will be served.
The New Bohemians explores 20 homes located primarily on the East and West coasts, and includes exclusive interviews with the owners. Each home is accompanied by an Adopt-an-Idea section offering general decor, styling and shopping tips for easy duplication in your own home. The book also features 12 do-it-yourself projects created by Blakeney, which were inspired by objects found throughout these homes.
“Justina’s book emphasizes the creativity involved in designing your home and tells the story of homeowners who don’t fear breaking the rules when it comes to design. It’s the perfect guide for the free-spirited home owner looking to inhabit a space that is truly unique,” said Cyrus Loloi, Principal. “This book signing gives self proclaimed ‘new bohemians’ the chance to meet and mingle with a designer who exemplifies this style, and also introduces the creative mind behind our innovative new designs.”
Justina Blakeney is a designer, author, award-winning blogger and one of the most followed design personalities on social media. Blakeney’s bohemian aesthetic emerged out of her multicultural upbringing in Berkeley, California. The convergence of cultures in her childhood home gave her an appreciation for mixing things up when it came to home décor. Her degree from UCLA in World Arts and Cultures, as well as extensive international travels also informed her aesthetic. It was this creative spirit and a love of sharing that compelled her to start a design blog when she returned to the US after living and designing in Italy for seven years. For Justina, decorating is about feeling free, having fun and getting a little bit wild. This partnership with Loloi marks Blakeney’s first product collaboration in the home space.
