Shopper’s Diary: Graanmarkt 13 in Antwerp

With interior architecture by Vincent Van Duysen, the newly opened three-story Graanmarkt 13 in Antwerp is a curated home where everything—fashion, furniture, art, home objects—is for sale. Co-owners Ilse Cornelissens and Tim Van Geloven live on the top floor of the elegant townhouse, which is located behind the fashionable Leopoldstreet in Antwerp; the lower floors include a restaurant (headed by Seppe Nobels), a gallery space, and an outdoor cafe. Of special note: the stunningly original light fixtures made from repurposed headlights by Beirut-based PS Lab (see Slow Design: PS Lab Lighting).
