Vanhille Atelier

(RE)UPHOLSTERY (RE)STORE (RE)MAKE

In our atelier in Ezelstraat, we restore and make a wide range of furniture, with a special expertise in North European and mid-century modern furniture, such as Hans Wegner, Arne Jacobsen, Børge Mogensen, Arne Vodder, Le Corbusier and Pierre Paulin and several others. The focus lies on keeping to the original design and methods, inside out. Next to that, we also have an expertise in treating and restoring wood and leather treatment. 

We take pride in keeping to the original making techniques and design, with an equal focus on restoring and treating the wood and leather. We are working closely with colleagues that maintain the same high quality of work, should the pieces contain elements that lay outside our expertise. 

 

Beside from working for private clients all over Europe, we have an ongoing collaboration with a major private Bank in Belgium and furniture galleries in New York, Berlin, Holland and France.  Since several years, we have also been restoring at the Brafa Art fair in Brussels.

philosophy

In our upholstery atelier we always strive to work as sustainably as possible. This means that we, when achievable, always use high quality natural materials free from harmful substances, Belgian CFK-free foams, sustainably farmed and naturally tanned skins, high quality European produced materials and fabrics and always strive to create as little waste as possible. We reuse where we can, but of cause never compromising on the quality.

For us, sustainability also means to make something that lasts for many years.

Sustainability, originality and quality.

1:

Send an email to Jeffrey.vanhille@telenet.be with a picture of your piece or request. Describe your thoughts on how you wish the piece to be.

(Communication can be in Dutch, English, French, German or Danish) 

 

2:

Within the following 10 workdays, you will receive an email with an estimate of the price. 

Note: This is an estimate, the final price depends on the choice of fabric or leather you choose.

Next you will be invited for a meeting in our atelier in Ezelstraat, where you will be presented with a range of fabrics or leather to choose from. We are always ready to guide you in anyway needed. If it is a larger piece, we can also arrange a fabric meeting in your own home, to make sure the choice, will be suitable with the rest of your interior. 

Note: We take Covid-19 very seriously and are following all the guidelines by wearing masks, clean hands, ventilating the rooms and keeping a distance to each other

We are Looking forward to hearing from you.
