About Brigitte Aerden
I welcome you wholeheartedly and would like to share my story with you. It began a long time ago, growing up experiencing my parent's love for antiques. Since I was a little girl, I have always been fascinated by very old and beautiful pieces of antique.
When I met my husband in 2010, I found my soulmate within him, sharing this passion for all things beautiful and old.
Our business evolved from our passion for searching antiques and architecturals from Belgium, France, Spain, Italy, England and Scandinavia, fascinated by the stories behind each of these lovely pieces we found. We both are swept away by all beautiful things and touched by style, with a deep respect for everything authentic and with an undetermined feeling for harmony.
The house we live in and it's surroundings, is a most wonderful and inspirational place, where we share our collection with our clients. On a regular basis we travel through Belgium, France, Spain, Scandinavia, Italy and England, in search for the most wonderful, enchanting and authentic antiques and architecturals. Also searching for painted furniture with it's beauty of imperfection and lovely goods fot the home and garden. Back home, all the new pieces will be restored or upholstered when needed, or simply allow them to stay authentic and with respect that it is most beautiful with faded grandeur and beauty of imperfection. The fabrics we use are from Belgium, England and The Netherlands and most of the furnishings and soft furnishings are custom made.
We renovate, decorate and furnish homes, using our antiques, architecturals and everything you see on our website.
You are most welcome to visit us in our Shops and by appointment you are most welcome to visit us every day of the week.
Our Shop is located at the Kloosterstraat 33 in Antwerp Belgium & our Showroom at Zandstraat 3 in Essen Belgium.
We do hope you will enjoy browsing our pages.
