‘The Apartment’ in Antwerp, designed by Belgian architect Vincent Van Duysen

The Apartment is a rentable space over two floors, above the Graanmarkt 13 shop in Antwerp.  It was designed as a place ‘where everyone would feel at home’, and now travellers can stay in the flat and live like a local in this wonderful city.  Inspired by his own home, the concrete walls and stunning interiors were the creation of Vincent Van Duysen – one of Belgium’s most respected architects.  These photographs by Frederik Vercruysse have featured in Architectural Digest and in Wallpaper magazine.

We love the elegant table and chairs here – this could easily be replicated with an oak table by Heerenhuis – perhaps the Trappist, together with some bentwood chairs…
