  The office where Poorter and Femke Holdrinet work looks onto the canal just beyond the building. The statement pieces in the space are a pair of lamps by Ghent-based designer Jos Devriendt of Low Tech Design. Poorter and Holdrinet have several lights by Devriendt, though these two are unique designs and not in regular production.  Photo by: Frederik Vercruysse

  The stars of the living room are a pair of pink Bird chairs by Harry Bertoia for Knoll. Both the marble-topped occasional table and the wood table are vintage, the antique rugs are from Morocco, a Low Pad chair by Jasper Morrison for Cappellini sits near the fireplace, and the brass-and-steel coffee table was designed by Poorter and Holdrinet.
