A FAMILY AFFAIR
MEET MIK HOLLIS
To Mik Hollis, fine antiques are a first language. His childhood summers were marked by extensive buying trips to Europe and Asia with his mother, Susanne, learning about decorative arts history first-hand from an interconnected, global design community, while his teenage years were spent learning the finer points of craftsmanship and quality in the workroom of his family’s fabled Pasadena showroom, where Hollis apprenticed under artisans who passed down an oral history for the craft of furniture making.
After charting his own course in the world of fine art, Mik returned to lead his family’s business at a turning point for the beloved HOLLIS brand, this time bridging his considerable pedigree and exceptional eye with the broader design community, and ushering HOLLIS Pasadena to its rightful place at the forefront of Los Angeles design excellence.
In an age with more access to antiques than ever, Mik serves as a valuable resource, for his unrivaled knowledge for pieces with integrity, quality of material, and provenance.
