Vintage treasure hunting at Depot09

On a stone’s throw from the city center of Ghent you will find Depot09, the biggest and bestest  vintage furniture dealer in all of Flanders. Strictly speaking Depot09 is not just one company, its host Bram told me during my visit, but rather a group of Dutch and Belgian dealers who joint hands last September and moved into an old factory hall on Nieuwevaart 118. And apparently this move has paid off. Holiday sales were great and Bram explained that a considerate portion of the usual stock had been sold. Lucky for me, there was still a great deal of vintage furniture and home accessories to discover and photograph for Interiorator. My heart jumped a little when I saw the Brumbury lamp I have wanted for years. It was reasonably priced, but I decided to wait just a little bit longer until I have finalized my plans for a big living room makeover this summer. Yes, I’m finally growing up!

PS: The pictures you see here are less than a week old – so if you see something that tickles your fancy, hop in your car and drive to Ghent. Of course you can also contact Depot09 to see if they can ship that polar bear skin or that giant plastic ear to you!

Oh, and one more thing – check out the house I walked by on the way back to the city center. Pretty bold color choice!
