  • A chair and table by Michael Verheyden in his Genk, Belgium, home. See High/Low: Leather Sling Chair for his design of the moment.
  • An artist/designer with a cult following among Belgian creatives, Jos Devriendt, likes to “present simple solutions for rather complex problems.” See his mushroom lamps and other work in today’s Art & Decoration post.
  • Actress Julianne Moore is a fan of Belgian architect Vincent Van Duysen (we’re on the bandwagon too), and she sat down with him at her kitchen table to discuss Belgian style; watch for their conversation in Tuesday’s Ask the Expert column. And have a look at Moore’s own Van Duysen–inspired kitchen remodel in Behind the Scenes: 5 Design Lessons from Julianne Moore.
  • Linen-cloaked hanging shades filter light while doubling as sculpture. In this week’s 10 Easy Pieces, Alexa presents our favorite examples, including DIY versions. Also on Tuesday, learn about Belgian linen and its many applications in Megan Wilson’s Object Lesson.
  • Great against gray: A Belgian duo’s chairs in a compelling palette are the subject of Christine’s Wednesday Furniture feature.
