If you want to look as happy as the collectors featured in our Gent article on page 26, then get yourself off Belgium, and make a b-line for DEPOT09. Housed in an old textile factory in the heart of Ghent, you’ll be blown away bij 1000m² of genuine vintage and industrial design. The impressive industrial setting is a great backdrop for the twenty dealers, who display a range of original furniture, lighting, art and quit often, the bizarre, from the 1930s to the 1980s – in fact, it’s the largest vintage design platform in Flanders. Check them out online – the stock is updated daily- or if you want to see this funky stuff in the flesh, the DEPO is open every Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. So go on, treat yoursef to a weekend roadtrip to Belgium – it’s only a hop away from the UK!
