Newly opened in Brussels' posh Ixelles district, Tenbosch House is a B&B that offers lots of inspiration for lovers of Scandinavian design. Owners Cedric Meuris and Bernard Devaux hired architect Patrice Lemeret to transform two nineteenth-century houses into one open, airy hotel, while designers Michel Penneman and Catharina Eklof chose 1960s Scandinavian furniture to maintain a mod look throughout.Among the classic 60s furniture, we spotted Hans Wegner chairs, Nisse Strinning shelves, and Poul Henningsen lighting. There are local references as well in the B&B's design — Belgian (and international) artwork appears in rooms and public spaces. The hotel strives to be "a place of serenity," one "that is small enough to care, yet spacious enough to give you freedom and calm."
