At the poolside on Kemmel hill
Tools for togetherness

On Kemmel hill, on the border between the forest and the fields, a wonderful 60s villa is hidden between the trees. Its immense woodland garden with swimming pool impresses. And the unspoiled views of the unique surroundings are breathtaking. The steep cobbled roads of Kemmel hill are often featured in cycling races. And we can't blame them. Because once you reach the top, at 156 meters, you have a fantastic view that even reaches to the French cities of Lille, Arras and Cambrai. The panoramics over the eight villages of Heuvelland with its wooded slopes, nature reserves and vast agricultural land are a real delight to the eye.

The Virus & Bistroo picnic tables in reed & bottle green add cosiness to the outdoor space and heat it up by at least 5 degrees. This warm and crafty color is obviously inspired by nature, and that's why it blends perfectly with the surrounding garden. While the Australis Sol+Luna's with grey chiné cushions and the Sticks in wood color match the architecture of the house and the terrace tiles. And as you can see, the Hopper picnic table with its Hellwood table top stands the test of time. The wood has revealed its true personality, as it has started to fade and turn silvery grey due to sun and rain. The Extremis furniture sets the tone in this back yard, but at the same time silently fades into the background.
