Curious about who is hiding behind the facade? Bolia Portraits is a series of portraits that bring you right inside – so you can meet some of the people who make us the inspiration universe we call Bolia. Learn more about creating a career with us, read about our funniest experiences and find inspiration for unique and hidden places worth visiting in some of Europe’s most beautiful cities.
Every Monday, we share a new portrait on LinkedIn, and we hope you’ll want to follow along.
"Forget about the Eiffel Tower – go to the outskirts of Paris and visit the Vincennes Forest, especially the Daumesnil Lake. It’s one of the most peaceful parks in Paris, and there’s a small island where you'll find beautiful peacocks."
Alexander Blom, Assistant Store Manager in Paris
"My craziest period at Bolia was when the pandemic hit and I had just become manager for 35 colleagues in Customer Care. It was a turbulent time, when everyone was renewing their home, when we had just introduced a new system and when our days quickly became incredibly busy. I really learned a lot from this."
Anne-Katrine Nielsen, Customer Care Manager at the head office
"I once sold a Bolia sofa to someone I was in love with. We’ve lived together happily ever since."
Bernd Hoffmann, Visual Merchandiser in Germany
"In fact, it was my aunt and cousin that got me started at Bolia. They've both been here for many years and have always spoken so highly about it. So of course I couldn't resist becoming part of the Bolia family when the opportunity arose."
Sarah Tschenka Callisen, Finance & HR Assistant at head office
"The best moments for me are when we launch a new collection. When the store needs to be rebuilt and the whole team includes everyone from design consultants, painters and electricians to removal people and everyone else in between. A great example of flexibility and team spirit."
Julien Ghirardini, Store Manager in Nice
Dull workspaces and tight hierarchies and structures are a thing of the past. The time has come for 'New ways of working', where individuality and teamwork are in focus. We prioritise sharing inspiration rather than information. And we strive to create space for creativity, where ideas are allowed to flow at our own pace, in surroundings in which we thrive. And most importantly, to create a space where we as people, colleagues and individuals have time to talk. This is what we at Bolia call 'power to the people'.
Dreaming of a career at Bolia? As part of our exciting journey, we expand every year with new design stores, and we are therefore looking for new, passionate colleagues in our existing and future stores as well as at our international head office in Denmark – and we'd love to have you on our journey.
