Belgian outdoor furniture part 1

28 comments 2007 at 09.12 am posted by Veerle Pieters

It’s Summer time in the Northern Hemisphere and on request of a few readers we look into the world of outdoor furniture design. A sector where Belgian designers apparently are making name and fame abroad. It’s probably due to the fact that we Belgians try to enjoy as much time outside as the weather allows.
