Rik Storms – more than a passion for authentic building materials. 40 years ago, at young age, Rik Storms started the restoration of very particular buildings: the beguinage of Leuven, the court of Busleyden at the fish market, particular houses, castles and farms. Over the years, Rik Storms started also with transactions and sale of old and antique building materials and restored them with particular care and attention. Storms met during his live the famous architect Raymond Rombouts, a close collaboration grew between them. Storms vision and knowledge about architectural concepts increased a lot. From that moment he was able to place historical building materials in an original and incomparable context. Authenticity and respect for tradition are the main matters for Storms in his constant search for the most beautiful old materials, which he integrates in classic and timeless interiors.
