Product description

Axel Vervoordt began purchasing antiques in his teens and has steadily built a vast collection of exquisite objects from around the world. He is renowned for his prestigious exhibitions at major world antique fairs, including the New York Design Fair and TEFAF Maastricht. His interior designs, in both traditional and modern settings around the world, combine antiques from all continents with a Zen sensuality, and they blend the old with the new to create harmonious interiors. His unusual pairings may include Chinese porcelain with English furniture or a Roman relic alongside a 1930s Flemish painting. The extent of Vervoordt's talent is revealed in the twenty-three homes in Europe and the United States presented here through Christian Sarramon's photographs. The variety of styles reflects Vervoordt's eclecticism, and his authentic and welcoming interiors are inspirational treasure troves. From the rustic charm of a Swiss chalet to the classic finesse of a Bordeaux chateau to the modern allure of a Miami mansion, Vervoordt's creations are perfectly in tune with the character and history of each space.
