Axel Vervoordt: The Story of a Style

by

Axel Vervoordt: The Story of a Style Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

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 it grew rapidly, and Vervoordt 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.

By juxtaposing different works of art, gathered throughout space and time, a spontaneous dialogue between them is revealed, creating a new dimension for the future. Axel Vervoordt transcends the roles of decorator and collector. He understands the power of objects to conjure up an entirely new atmosphere and knows exactly where to place things so as to transform the space.

This gorgeous book will serve as an inspiration for anyone interested in making their home elegant and personal, without allowing it to become ostentatious or superfluous.
