Raf Simons, the designer behind the Raf Simons and Jil Sander brands, recently opened the doors to his home in Antwerp, Belgium to the Wall Street Journal. The elegant apartment was built in 1968 and has a wenge-wood floating staircase, built-in cabinets and floor-to-ceiling sliding-glass windows. Furniture is the point of interest around the apartment with a Pierre Jeanneret couch and chairs in the living room originally made in the ’50s for public buildings in Chandigarh, India, a low Chapo coffee table, a Ron Arad “Rolling Volume” chair, and various George Nakashima originals including a conoid bench, woven lounge chair and rare dining-room table with five asymmetrical legs. Although Simons is considering moving to Berlin or New York, Simons says ”in this business, I know I could work somewhere else one day, but I’ll always keep this apartment.” Read the full article over at the WSJ.
