Axel Vervoordt began his career as an art and antiques dealer in the late 1960s, when he meticulously renovated a narrow street with sixteen of the oldest houses in Antwerp. In 1986, his company moved to a castle near Antwerp, where he became a major collector and decorator. The foundation of Vervoordt's style is his commitment to making the past a relevant part of today's design. This gorgeous book will be an inspiration to anyone interested in a home that is elegant and personal without being ostentatious.
"The photographs in the book depict the interiors of his houses over the years, works of art and antiquities he [Vervoordt] has bought and sold anything he finds inspirational like a canopic jar from Egypt, the lacquered head of a Japanese lohan or an old wall with peeling blue paint." -- THE NEW YORK TIMES
