Belgian antiques dealer Simon de Harlez took over his parents’ business in 2010 to specialise in what he loves: Scandinavian antique furniture. All year around he is hunting for antiques in Belgium and all over Europe. Earlier this week Simon announced the launch of his brand new webpage Deulin Antiques.
His antiques business is based in the Château de Deulin, the family castle where he grew up and where his father Stéphane de Harlez still lives.
Château de Deulin, the home of the family de Harlez, was built in 1758 by Guillaume Joseph de Harlez, and completed and decorated by his son Simon-Joseph de Harlez in 1770. Today the Château is inhabited by Stéphane de Harlez de Deulin, (who ran an antiques business for many years) and his children. To read more of this Belgian architectural heritage listed castle, please visit the webpage at ESPACE DEULIN.BE.
Deulin Antiques is housed in one of the many castle’s spaces and is offering a wide choice of furniture and decorative pieces sourced mostly in Sweden, or found in Belgium, France and Italy, that are stored in a warehouse with over 800 m2.
