leisurely through the countryside
where schelde and durme meet
to the sound of silence
enjoy a beautiful breakfast
Tielrode is a small town, nestled in a magnificent river landscape where the Durme meets the Schelde. Nevertheless are Brussels, Antwerp and Ghent in easy reach.
On this beautiful spot Sofie Lachaert and Luc d'Hanis established their gallery. The interior is minimalistic and sober, in the serene spaces the beauty of the work that is (re)presented comes out perfectly. Work of museum quality, hesitating on the boundary between art and design.
Next door to the gallery, in the former shipyards' offices Lachaert & d'Hanis created an exclusive B&B. With a keen eye for detail Lachaert & d'Hanis personally designed the décor, a fascinating blend of contemporary design and art and objects from the gallery.
Three connecting spaces, light and sober, are furnished with great care and with carefully chosen furniture and objects from mainly Belgian designers. Furniture by Bram Boo & Casimir, a relax chair by Maarten van Severen, art by Thierry De Cordier, P. Bourgeois e.o.,objects of d'Hanis & Lachaert...
