Discover Benelux | Design | Exquisite Tableware

The finest and most elegant tableware for all occasions TEXT: LIDIJA LIEGIS | PHOTOS: HOOLIE

Organising a wedding, or simply hosting a dinner party for friends? Go all out and hire one of the incredible fine porcelain sets available from Belgian company Hoolie. There is something for everyone, with delicate dishes and the most beautiful crystal ware in a multitude of styles of colours. So whether your preferences are for something romantic, bucolic or classic, you are bound to find something amongst the 3,000 stunning pieces. The hand-picked dishes come from across Europe, ranging mostly from the 1900s through to the 1960s. Hoolie’s special brand name comes from the Irish word for a lively party amongst friends. Anne Sophie Prevot is the enthusiastic talent behind Hoolie. “We hire out tableware for everyone: the largest event we held had 1,000 people, but equally we cater to the everyday consumer, starting from two people.” Ms. Prevot founded the company after working in film and

TV production. “I realised there was a huge demand for vintage dining sets,” she explains. Hoolie also offers a full service for those looking for exquisite table dressing: this includes flowers, as well as help with choosing napkins, tablecloths, chairs and table décor. Pieces are delivered to your door and can be ordered online or in person at the stunning 1930s house in Uccle where they are displayed. The tableware is then collected after the event with no need for washing up. www.hoolie.be
