Introduction

Walda Pairon is one of the best interior designers we can find in Belgium. And while antiques dealer and designer Axel Vervoordt still is the most recognizable designer of this country (he operates out of the Kanaal, a complex of restored 19th-century warehouses and grain silos in Antwerp), it would be remiss not to mention his compatriot Walda Pairon. Pairon, who lives and works in a small town north of Antwerp, is one of Belgian’s most influential designers and offers a restrained version of Belgian luxe where materials and light take center stage.

Walda Pairon is passionate in word and image. Her style is authentic and reflects a perfect harmony. Her work is widely known, she works with passion and love. Her special good taste is her secret. Color is favorite in her decor. Walda is inspired by Italy, especially by Tuscany.

Works

Interiors

Walda Pairon is an influential interior designer of her generation. She draws up her interiors from a strong interest in colours, fabrics and fashion, and combines old and characterful object d’art with more modern objects into an inspirational living space. Pairon puts great importance on the placement of objects; nothing should be gratuitous.

Tiled floor to ceiling walls are a common Belgian feature as are the stone walls. Pairon firmly believes a kitchen should both be functional and welcoming.
