Chris Tolevski from Lace Interiors has pride in his achievements since coming out to Australia from Europe at 19 years of age with just a suitcase on his own.

With hard work and determination to succeed, he is happy to say he achieved his goals in being content where he is at.

Venturing out into the country as a tailor, he took up interior design in search of looking out for something more colourful.

Together with his wife, Anne, they started up Lace Interiors in 1984, from their showroom in Tilba Street, Essendon for four years. They then moved around the corner in Buckley Street and have been servicing Melbourne clients since.

They have worked through many lovely homes in Melbourne including heritage-listed homes such as ‘Ravenswood’ in Ivanhoe, ‘Selveta’ in Parkville, ‘Montclair Aged Care’ in Brighton , ‘Airedale’ in Essendon and the list goes on.

After 40 years Lace Interiors will be closing its showroom in Essendon.

As one of the longest-established showrooms in the Essendon shopping strip, it will be closing its doors by the end of July.

Chris and Anne would like to sincerely thank everyone for their support and friendships they’ve developed.

There will be last chances to grab great bargains at the closing down sale starting on July 5.

It it is now another era for Chris and Anne who look forward to spending more time with their grandchildren.
