Axel Vervoordt Interiors

First coming to prominence as an antiques dealer, Axel Vervoordt is now a highly influential interior designer as well. The subtle rooms that are his claim to fame—spartan to some eyes but warmed by smooth plaster walls, hearty linen, and aged wood—exhibit a tranquillity that can be traced to his appreciation of Japanese Zen restraint. Vervoordt also produces a private-label collection that includes overscale slipcovered sofas and a chic slate-top table—the latter sparked by furniture depicted in Egyptian tomb paintings.
