Items & Interiors: two words that sum up the life of interior stylist Bea Mombaers. They exemplify how the foundation of Bea’s world is formed by her innate fascination for things with a past life, for objects that tell an extraordinary story, combined with an unsurpassed sense of how to create a unique atmosphere.
Over the past three decades Bea Mombaers has blossomed from a passionate collector into a reputable name in the international art and design scene. From the start, her lifestyle boutique in Knokke, ‘Items’ was the place to be for rare collector’s items, original works of art, vintage furniture and a selection of exclusive homeware articles.
Together with photographer Raf Maes and designer Geoffrey Brusatto, Bea spent the past two years travelling through her own universe. They visited homes both in Belgium and abroad and made beautiful images of the interiors that Bea has put together, but also of intriguing details, beautiful still lifes and objects that tell a story that Bea loves. The result is a beautiful book in which the images are arranged according to the different moments in a day.
