Illustrated with beautiful photographs, this publication provides a unique opportunity to see the work of one of the most original and adventurous collectors and designers of our time.

Since then, his displays at leading art fairs around the world have been easgerly awaited by an avid public. Here, he shares how to really inhabit a home. Color photography. 256p.

Sinopsis: 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 château to the modern allure of a Miami mansion, Vervoordt’s creations are perfectly in tune with the character and history of each space.
About the Author: Armelle Baron, president of the European Confederation of Art Experts (CEDEA), is an expert on antique paintings.
