In and Out at Brussels Design Market

My friends on Facebook already knew it – I am not a fan of Brussels. Every time I go there, I leave again wondering why I never discover the cool part of town. Except now I think I’ve found it. Sort of. You see, every year Brussels hosts the biggest vintage interior design market in Europe. It’s called Brussels Design Market and yesterday I got up at the crack of dawn to go there –  so you wouldn’t have to. It was literally in and out because I had zero interest in seeing the rest of the city, if I may say so. And before I end up with an angry mob of Belgians holding pitchforks and torches at my front door, let me tell you that I LOVE Belgium. I have some very fond memories of my interview with Gert Voorjans at his Antwerp home. And I dedicated a few blogposts to a weekend in Ghent a few years ago – loved the Sandton Reylof Hotel and the Design Museum. Back to Brussels Design Market though. It wasn’t as big as I expected it to be. In fact, it was a lot smaller than Les Puces in Paris. Now that’s what I call big. Even so, I had a wonderful time in Brussels and was surprised how affordable all the design on display was. I sort of blocked out all the boring Mid-Century Modern Scandinavian pieces. That stuff is so out. Instead, I took tons of photo’s of what’s definitely in – like the sophisticated and colorful items you see below. I briefly considered buying a parasol-sized brass palm tree lamp but figured I couldn’t take it with me on the train back to Rotterdam. You can’t always get what you want, right?
