Passion for design in an architectural masterpiece TEXT: MYRIAM GWYNNED DIJCK & MIRJAM VAN BIEMEN
Just a single glance at the formidable showroom building of Master Meubel nearby Turnhout makes one thing instantly clear: design is in the genes of this company. Master Meubel is a specialist store in furniture and interior design, offering a spectacular 130 brands spread out over 7,000 square metres of modern designer furniture heaven. It is almost like entering a museum, as the impressive building matches the magnif-
icent furniture inside it. “Sometimes clients come up to me and ask if they are allowed to test the chairs and sofas. Of course this is possible, we are a showroom after all,” starts Goele Vermeeren, manager of Master Meubel. There is a superb range of exclusive objects and (an) entire collection(s) by design brands at Master Meubel. Always searching for eye-catching combinations, the company is an expert at showing the
breadth and versatility of modern furniture design. With an in-house team of 15 interior designers, there is also the opportunity to get individual, professional advice. Vermeeren adds: “New clients are matched to one of our interior designers to discuss a wide range of interior topics. Afterwards the designer will share their ideas with colleagues, which helps us to form broader perspectives and constantly generate new ideas.”
The Master Meubel showroom is located in the architecturally iconic building of the Turnhoutse School from 1968, and it is well worth a visit.
