Traditional oak paneling in modern settings

 

Following trends in interior design, we all have noticed that it became very trendy to paint paneling in white, evoking  the atmosphere of the Haussmannien apartments in Paris.

But what do you think about oak paneling in modern interior design settings?

Isn’t that beautiful !?

Take a look inside the couture boutique NATAN located in the Avenue Louise, Brussels. Natan is one of the most exclusive couture shops in Brussels. Belgian fashion designer Edouard Vermeulen is worldwide famous and designs stylish and sophisticated pieces.

Belgian architect and interior designer Vincent Van Duysen was commissioned to design the boutique’s interior.

It is absolutely fascinating to see how Van Duysen knew how to combine modern design with the traditional paneling.
