INTERIORS INSPIRATION: AXEL VERVOORDT AND THE AMAZING KANAAL SPACE







A LARGE ANISH KAPOOR HINDS IN ONE OF THE OUT BUILDINGS 

Back in the winter of 2009, we were fortunate enough to go to Mr Vervoordt's 'Kanaal' space, a group of old industrial warehouses on the outskirts of Antwerp. Over the last 12 year it has been turned into various different things from gallery spaces, showrooms to restoration workshops - all part of the Vervoordt empire. 

It is one of the most inspiring spaces. One can walk around for hours looking at the huge collection of antiques, the beauty and simplicity of the loft style spaces or admire his home collection. It's currently being further developed into a residential area, described as the new 'City in the Country.'

If all the above isn't enough, they casually have a huge Anish Kapoor within one of the out buildings.
