Designer, author and observer of all things stylish, Steven Stolman was born in Boston and raised in West Hartford, CT. A graduate of New York’s Parsons School of Design, he spent many years as a “worker bee” on Seventh Avenue before going out on his own with a collection of resort wear for men, women and children. Sold from his eponymous shops in tony towns like Southampton, Palm Beach, Nantucket and Beverly Hills, his simple, unique designs cut from decorative fabrics became a cult favorite among the smart set; they remain collectors’ items to this day.
In 2011, Stolman was tapped to serve as president of Scalamandre, the renowned textiles house. During his three-year tenure, he spearheaded an extraordinary brand expansion that brought the Scalamandre name and its iconic motifs to distinctive collections of china and crystal, deluxe bedding, lighting, upholstered furniture, decorative accessories and paper goods that continue to be sold worldwide.
Now an author, lecturer and brand strategist for businesses in the design and decor space, he is married to software executive Rich Wilkie, and divides his time between homes in Palm Beach and New York, along with extensive global travel.
