welcome to boutique Vanhille grubert
Jeffrey VANHILLE and Emilie GRUBERT are a Belgian and Danish couple, running an upholstery atelier and an interior boutique in the center of the UNESCO protected city of Bruges
The atelier does restoration, upholstery, interior design and small furnishings, combined with a boutique selling own designs, next to handpicked quality interior items from European artisans and family run and/or socially aware businesses, mid-century design classics, ceramics and furniture.
With Grubert’s background in fashion design and Vanhille’s special expertise in original restoration of mid-century classics, we aim at creating a unique approach to craft and interior, always focusing on the long lasting, sustainable and real, which goes beyond the obvious layers of aesthetic, taste and style.
Not constrained by current trends, but focused on the timeless.
We believe in objects that are honest and clear enough in form to withstand trends and of a high enough quality to endure time. We believe that the things we surround ourselves with, should offer a sense of belonging through an understanding of what came before and what one wishes to come after.
Long-lasting items that bring joy and make people feel at home in a creative and comfortable environment.
We always strive to work as sustainably as possible. This means that we, when possible, always use and sell European produced products, high quality fabrics and always strive to create as little waste as possible. We reuse where we can, but of cause never compromising on the quality.
Because sustainability is also to make something that lasts for many years.
We also aim at offering our customers beautiful, hand selected vintage items, that can get a new life and new appreciation, without adding more to the global mass of items.
Using mainly European products, makes it possible for us to more easily track our suppliers and their suppliers and make sure they treat the environment, animals and humans with respect.
Nothing in the world is for free or cheap. Someone or something always pays the price.
In our boutique at Ezelstraat, you can find unique handcrafted design pieces for interior and fashion. Our main line is ‘VANHILLE GRUBERT’, which consists of objects and wall pieces all designed and made in house by Vanhille and Grubert, mainly from natural European produced materials.
We also distribute Filson, Thunders Love socks, woolen plaids by the family run Portuguese company Burel and the socially aware company Teixidors, that delivers wonderful handwoven plaids and scarfs. We also have a selection of sheepskins from the Faroe islands, Gotland,France, Iceland and Holland, all in the most stunning natural qualities, handmade Danish silver jewelry, beeswax candles, bags, clothing, soaps, handmade ceramics, vintage interior pieces, leather, wood and fabric cleaning and protecting products. We also distribute exquisite wallpapers and wall coverings by distinguished European designers.
Except for Filson, all our products are made in Europe, which makes it more simple to get a product you can feel good about and be sure that the pressure on the environment, animal well-fare and human rights have been kept under control and that it has not been transported half around the world, before it lands in your hands.
Filson produces extremely high quality products, with a lifelong guarantee. Good strong quality that last a lifetime, also means sustainability. We mainly offer Filson bags and luggage, which has all been produced in Seattle in USA. For their other items, they keep a strict eye on their suppliers and their factories around the world.
We continuously add new collections and items to our range.
