Trending on Remodelista: 5 Flemish Design Ideas to Steal

June 8, 2018

This week the Remodelista editors found design inspiration in Flanders, where some of the best designs have a flavor of both Belgium and the Netherlands. Here are five Flemish design ideas to steal.

Simple Sofas

A Three-Seater Sofa has a solid oak base and down-and-feather-wrapped polyurethane foam cushions; €3,900.

White Faucets

“If you’re going for a full-on modern look in the kitchen or bath, you’ll need the right matte white faucet,” the Remodelista editors note. “Brands like Vola, California Faucets, and Watermark offer a white finish for most models—even Ikea makes one.” See our picks in this week’s 10 Easy Pieces post.

Baseboards: Remodeling 101

Architect James Dixon helps us navigate the many arcane rules behind choosing and installing molding. In this week’s installment of Remodeling 101, we tackle baseboards. “All the trim should be part of the same family, with similar detail and proportions,” Dixon says. “While I love an 18-inch-high, elaborately carved baseboard, it won’t feel right in a tiny room with a low ceiling.”

Indoor-Outdoor Chairs

Designer Merckx’s ICO collection of furnishings and accessories includes a Profile chair (shown above), suitable for use outdoors or in—with a weather-resistant steel frame painted black and a perforated seat and wood armrest.

Reflecting Pools

During a remodel project, German designer Valentin Loellmann noticed that a curious effect occurred after a rainstorm. “The sun came out and there was this shimmering light throughout the entire house reflected from the water, so I figured we needed a pool,” he says.
