WGSN-homebuildlife paid a visit to the antique markets in Brussels to seek inspiration. The Sablon Antique Market and the popular Flea Market of the Marolles were crammed full of incredible vintage finds, but we were particlarly taken with the selection of beautiful gold gilded tea sets on show. Hand painted floral patterns in dainty pink hues trimmed with gold lace borders were everywhere. Here are a selection of our favourites.

Artists and designers are given one week each to fill this Berlin shop window with a display of their choosing. The items on show are not available from the shop itself, which doesn’t open; instead, admirers can go online to purchase selected pieces from each display and learn more about the ideas behind them.
