July 29, 2011 - New York, NY – Scalamandré, America’s leading purveyor of exquisite decorative fabrics, wallcoverings, trims and furnishings recently announced that Steven Stolman, an acclaimed designer renowned for his innovative use of textiles and a respected member of the design community, will be joining the company as President, effective July 25.
"All of us at Scalamandré are delighted to welcome such a multi-talented, visionary individual as Steven. He is a highly accomplished design professional who brings not only outstanding business, marketing and administrative skills, but also a wealth of knowledge of luxury branding. We look forward to the exciting new directions in which he will be taking the company, along with refining and expanding our core businesses," said Louis Renzo, CEO. Stolman added, "I am thrilled to be joining Scalamandré in a leadership role. My love affair with this venerable house began early in my career, so for me personally, this is a dream come true that was decades in the making."
Mr. Stolman attended Carnegie Mellon University and Parsons School of Design. Following graduation, he held positions at several celebrated fashion houses, among them Valentino Studio, Pauline Trigere and Albert Nipon. In 1993, he was engaged to assist in the revival of the Lilly Pulitzer label. Two years later, he opened his first eponymous boutique in Southampton and expanded to shops in New York, Palm Beach, Nantucket, Naples, Beverly Hills and East Hampton. While fabrics consistently played a significant role in Mr. Stolman’s oeuvre, it was at this time that his inventive, trend-setting use of home décor fabrics and his chic retail interiors captured the attention of the interior furnishing community. In 2008, he was recruited by Jack Rogers to reinvigorate and rebrand the 50 year-old footwear, apparel and accessories company.
