Boxy Fine Foods, Ghent

Boxy Fine Foods, Ghent, counter2Today I’m back with an interior design after a long time! I think I will compensate you with today’s post, tell me at the end!
What can anyone say about this deli store/ catering space that leaves you breathless! I got so in loved when I saw it that words cant’s describe my admiration. Belgian twin brothers, Kristof and Stefan Boxy opened this store in Ghent, Belgium following their big carrier in culinary . Several michelin star restaurants, catering businesses and cookbooks (Just Cooking) can prove their talent. Unfortunately, this venture closed after a year for unknown reasons. For sure it’s worth noticed after all. Boxy Fine Foods, Ghent, counter3 Designed in collaboration with Frederic Hooft, it’s a luxurius space, very chic and elegant with a contemporary touch. As you can see it doesn’t seem old and heavy decorated but very fresh and modern. The beautiful moldings on the ceilings, the sparkling chandeliers, the sumptuous mirrors, the wooden floor and some antique furniture are combined with the minimal display cases and counters, naked walls and off-white colors. That’s how the atmosphere of history and tradition with a modern twist is created. Minimal opulence! The setting reminds us of a museum or an art gallery, which is partly the reason the whole enterprise appears opulent and luxurious and sets one up to expect high prices and superior quality. – Tuija Seipell.

Two hanging  sets of mossy balls with plants welcome us and soften the white environment of the inside. Yet they strenghten the impression of an art gallery!
