Are you addicted to interior design like so many of us? If so, you need to pay a visit to Slots, where a stroll through the shop will be as rewarding for you as a day at Barneys New York is for a fashionista. Slots is an institution. This sublime showroom brimming with Flemish designer home furnishings is spread out over 5000 m2 (some 54,000 sq ft) and boasts dozens of cleverly-arranged rooms. No doubt there’s an item or piece of furniture that will fit right into your home. This mecca of style and extravagance has something for each of us, whether it be modern, colonial, Scandinavian or classic. Sofas and XXL coffee tables, lights, carpets and rugs, candle holders, dishware, furniture, household linen, beds, paintings, and accessories for the kitchen, bathroom or office.
Certain items are even unique pieces. Tailor-made items made of magnificent fabrics and materials for curtains and carpets or for your bath and kitchen can be found here too. The piece de resistance, though, is the “Outdoor” collection, nestled in a veritable garden of Eden. You won’t believe your eyes: visions of beautiful sofas, lounge chairs, parasols, flower pots, candles… Everything is so beautiful that you’ll be tempted to make a few purchases, even if you don’t have a garden at home at all!
Before you know it you’ll have been wandering through the aisles here for hours without even feeling tired. You’ll have just enough time to reward yourself with an ultimate little pleasure at the Slots café, though. Enjoy a salad or café gourmand (coffee and small desert) either indoors or out in the garden. Next thing you know someone will be whispering, “Excuse me but we have to close soon…” Yes, unfortunately, at some point it’ll be time to head back to reality.
