It is worth every plane, train and automobile ride to Axel Vervoordt’s studio outside Antwerp where you are immersed in his perfectly designed world.
Axel began his calling as a young boy collecting unique pieces while traveling with his father. Overtime, people admired his discoveries and began asking to buy items from his thoughtfully curated collection. Today, he has an interior design empire and aesthetic completely his own.
The stunning showroom is located on 3 floors in a large warehouse with a view of Axel V designed lofts, where every detail was designed by him. His ‘cabinet of curiosities’ fills two rooms with untouched (he does not believe in restoring the pieces he finds so they maintain their original character) antiques collected during his travels. There are rooms full of Axel-picked art, photography and of course his beautifully designed furniture.
