I decided to go and check out Brussels having heard that it’s a great place to source mid century furniture. I'm currently sourcing for a large house in Highgate.
First stop, the flea market in Place du Jeu de Balle (or “Vieux Marché” in French) in the Marolles district... I found a beautiful old photographic book with stunning images of Mexico. After a wander around the flea market, we headed over to the nearby side streets to check out all of the vintage furniture shops.
We discovered some amazing artworks and I couldn’t resist buying some vinyl in a fabulous record store!
Clearly parched from a busy day, we ended the night at Goupil Le Fol, a cocktail bar that was a very busy brothel in previous years. It's a mad acid trip of rambling alleyways and squishy old sofas - and fantastic cocktails!
