Love for Belgian Linen


Last week I had an appointment with the representative of LIBECO, our world-known company for Belgian linen.  It was a few months ago since he visited and I really needed some information about new linens, especially about the Libeco Home Collection, table and bed linen.

I am always surprised about all these beautiful, different textures and range of colors ! I just love the natural touch of our Belgian linen.

Since Axel Vervoordt introduced us to the linen slipcovers for seats and chairs, a lot of designers started to work with linen.

In Belgian interiors you will see linen used for draperies and blinds, for seating upholstery, table, bed and bath linen.

I am not aiming to tell you about the history of linen today, I want you to give some ideas how to use linen in your interior.

But if you want to know more about the flax’ history you will find a lot to read at the LIBECO website HERE.

Diane Dorrans Seaks of the Style Saloniste blog wrote a very interesting blogpost about Belgian linen HERE ! It is a most interesting article to read!

Growing up in the Belgian area, known for the linen industry, will definitely explain my love for linen.



Our orangery where I used linen for the draperies and the slipcovered seats.



Our living room with linen upholstered seats.



I really love the combination of natural materials as here in our library, a combination of an oak woodpaneling and a linen upholstered seat.



There is a wide range of colors and textures available in linen fabrics.

And did you know that from the moment you order a certain number of meters, the LIBECO company will dye the linen in your particular chosen color!!!


So, linen can be used for all your window treatment.

One of my favorite colors is celadon. Libeco offers a lot of shades of celadon linen. The Garnier’s sofa with a celadon slipcover.
