A scarce copy of the first book published by the Belgian antiques & art dealer and interior designer Axel Vervoordt. Not to be confused with the 2012 book of the same name, this book offers a illustrated tour through Axel and his wife May's family home at the Castle of s'Gravenwezel and their artistic centre Kanaal. Vervoordt is an influential designer, recognised for being a leader in the art of combining of old and new. The stunning photographs in this book reveal his own taste and how, as a family, the Vervoordts live and entertain in style.
