Axel Vervoordt. If you do not know this name, you will remember it once you get to the end of this post. Axel Vervoordt of Antwerp, Belgium started out as an antiques dealer and has become one of the most influential interior designers of our time. His spaces are poetic, artistic and mesmerizing. It is almost more what is not there that what is. These first two rooms have captured me and made my heart skip a beat.
