We often have long standing relationships and close collaborations with our clients. Belgian antiques dealer and interior designer Jean-Philippe Demeyer is a perfect example. Demeyer and his two business partners, Frank Ver Elst and Jean-Paul Dewever, began their company with a small antiques shop in the Belgian seaside resort of Knokke. Today the three partners operate a much more far-reaching business under the name JPDemeyer&Co, including interior decorating, antiques dealing, restoration and the design of bespoke sofas and chairs. Demeyer likes to describe his taste as “anti-serious.” That is, humorous, but not in a way that makes anyone laugh. He seeks surprising juxtapositions of pieces from different eras, origins, colors and moods, happily juxtaposing objects with high patina and funky style, against expensive objects and items of found-art kitsch. JPDemeyer&Co has been included in the prestigious AD100 list.
