Among the furniture in this kitchen is both rustic and modern, is “a real find(unearthed) on a website for individuals an old Formica buffet, with typical credenza 60s Everything in this kitchen is part of the transformation of this piece that I cut in two, ” explains the interior designer. After Xavier Devaux has filled the empty spaces by multiplying the tips and chose a gray polished concrete for the floor.
The solid wood worktop was made from a recovery parquet. As for the handles of closet doors, aluminum coated with black epoxy, the architect has recovered on a construction site. ” They have a history since they come from an old kitchen of La Samaritaine . ” To achieve a kitchen homogeneous, which appears in one piece, he also painted his refrigerator and dishwasher even green. Successful bet.
In this house, everything is recycling craft. ” I am the son of an antiques dealer, auctioneer brother and I have a natural sensitivity for the decorative arts in general and the old design in particular. I also found my wallpaper in the street. And I also realized sliding wooden doors, recovering those of the old shop.”
As for the balls to coat, “is typical of the Fifties”. A beautiful piece that has lost none of its innovative character and contrasts sharply with the rough appearance of the wood and the back side of the wallpaper.
The table is a creation made especially for the shop. “The feet were made from the same material: a panel cut into pieces and then assembled. The working board is resin-coated, such as soil, while the rest remained raw.” And if the sink and suspensions have also been recovered, the work plan was made to measure, from blue stone Hainaut.
Signed by the African artist Hamed Ouattara, this colorful coffee table was made from recycled oil drums hammered, shaped and welded to shape the furniture. On the walls, an Belgium the card is discovered on one side and, on the other, a sample of different shades, which can opt when laying the concrete floor. As the chair: “This is the twentieth century in its diversity”, according to Xavier Devaux.
