BELGIAN DESIGN ~ JEAN-PHILIPPE DEMEYER

Belgian antiquaire and designer Jean-Philippe Demeyer of Brudges in East Flanders renovated this medieval manor.  Leaving the stone floors and plaster walls intact, Demeyer decorated the home with lush fabrics and used a mix of contemporary and antique furnishings.  He searched everywhere he went to find old pieces from courtyards and building sites.

The manor was built as a hunting club in the 14th century, with additions built in the 16th and 19th century.  The renovation took five years, and the manor serves as home and workspace to the businesses’ three owners, Demeyer, Frank ver Elst, and Jean-Paul Dewever.  ENJOY!
