We are very happy with these classic Belgium Brass chandeliers! Rewired without the normal “candles + drip cups” and adding LED sparkle! The long chains allow them to work independently from one another AND to alter the heights as needed. They can all be moved one side or be taken off the bar and laid on the floor – or you can simply use imagination. A myriad of possibilities!
We were asked to give the office of the Austrian Trade Commission in Brussels – ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA – a new look as most parts of the office had been renovated back in the 1990s.
The objective was to create a lighter, modern and welcoming environment, equally for employees and clients. Due to budget constraints, the original plans – taking out existing walls and creating an open space office – could not been realised. However, we still brought in a lot of improvements such as LED lighting, new floors and painting, as well as creating a congenial meeting space. Office equipment has been hidden by a vertical blind in the Austrian CI colours. The space makes very body happy as it doubles for formal and informal gatherings…

One of our latest projects is a beautiful example of a transitional style interior. The clients asked us to give the Salon of their stunning 19th century Hôtel-de-maître a more modern and easy to live with style lift.
We have chosen various items to compliment their grand 1930’s painting – all of which are locally sourced here in Belgium – the sofa from PH Collection, hand-made lamp shades from Artho, an antic chandelier from D+ Design, and last not least, a beautifully soft T-silk rug from Bomat’s Genoa collection.
For all interior design lovers out there, we would like to tell you about one of our favourite blogs. New York-based blogger and Interior Designer Heather Clawson is behind Habitually Chic, an insightful and stylish blog with beautiful pictures of fantastic homes, not unlike the ones you can find in glossy interior design magazines. Clawson’s blog is a great way to spend your time, as the stunning settings let you dream yourself away… or crave for exclusive designer furniture
Always open to new inspiration we popped in at Lulu Home & Interior, with its 850 square meters of furniture exhibition close to Place Chatelain in Brussels, it’s a great place to hang out on a rainy (or snowy) afternoon. The shop offers a well selected mix of contemporary furniture and decoration objects. The style could be described as a mix of 50s inspired, industrial and Scandinavian. After having strolled around for a while we finished off with a coffee at their café. If you are planning to go furniture shopping in Brussels this is definitely a place to check out.
’Tstad held a 2 day pop-up exhibition at the Verbeke Foundation in Kemzeke not far from Antwerp. We thought it was a great possibility to get some inspiration and find out what’s new for 2016! The exhibition was a pleasure to visit, not least for the cool environment of the Verbeke Foundation showroom, decorated with fascinating art pieces.
Many exhibitors had drawn inspiration from nature and ecology. One of the highlights were the atelier of Tradewinds – charming little retro style wagons for the hotel industry or private gardens – and Breit & Rietveld, a Dutch wholesaler of great decoration products from the Far East, like beautiful handmade tables, pots and stone objects.
After an inspirational visit, Heidi was ready for lunch!!
