Lars August Holmström was a Swedish art smith born in Kilafors. Lars's father was a farrier, and initially, the son followed in his father's footsteps but changed careers after being badly kicked. At the age of 18, he received a scholarship to study with the smith Carl Gustav Ericsson in Arvika, who signed his works "Erco"). Later, Lars Holmström worked as a smith for Elis Ericsson, "Elis i Taserud". In 1921, Holmström started his own business. He is best known for his fixtures and candlesticks. He was among the craftsmen who started Arvika Konsthantverk and forged its shop sign in iron and brass. In 1925, he participated in the World Exhibition in Paris, displaying chandeliers and candlesticks in brass, as well as silver works.
