  In the home of two interior architects 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. But the stars of the living room are still a pair of pink Bird chairs Bertoia for Knoll. Photo by Frederik Vercruysse.    This originally appeared in European Union: 10 Belgian Homes.
