An Eclectic Living Room in Antwerp

Gallerist Veerle Wenes has sage advice for composing interior spaces: "People should choose objects for their home with passion, love, and emotion. You must give your interior some time to grow with your experiences. Let it be a combination of important discoveries from your own life," she says. Her eclectic Antwerp living room reflects this philosophy in action. A charcoal-gray modern sofa from Flexform outfitted with cushions from Chevalier Masson anchors the space. Hanging lamps by Muller van Severen (a Belgian design duo Wenes represents in her gallery, Valerie Traan) illuminate the space from overhead. Jens Fager's Raw candelabra is prominently situated atop a black coffee table. "Collectors like to see the pieces in my own home—it helps convince them of the quality of the work—but it's not a strategy," Wenes says. "I simply surround myself with pieces I like."

Modern and Young: A Furniture-Filled Living Room in Los Feliz

“We literally had no furniture so we were starting from scratch,” says actor Adam Campbell of the recently renovated Los Feliz abode he shares with wife and fellow actress Jayma Mays from our Furniture Issue. “We thought: Let’s give it a go ourselves, and if it looks disastrous then we’ll think about using an interior designer.” The young couple's living room is the best reflection of their burgeoning furniture collecting skills—a cool mix of high and low: vintage and contemporary furniture, design-shop purchases, and internet finds fill the space, such as a mid-century Danish sofa, square blocked rug by Scholten & Baijings for Hay, and a long wooden table. To the right, a Plugged Pendant lamp from Muuto hangs above a white legged Pure dining table from CB2, while tubular steel side chairs from Danish Modern L.A. and Verner Panton chairs found on, you guessed it, Craigslist, graciously await a fluttering of guests. As Mays says, “I feel that our furniture reflects the marriage of both old and new and hopefully does so with a bit of levity and color."
