Have a little tour through Piet Boon’s Farmhouse in AmsterdamMonday 15 July 2019
If you happen to be wandering around Amsterdam, more specifically on its northeast área, you might be lucky enough to find a certain farmhouse that will immediately catch your attention. We’re talking about Designer Piet Boon’s home, which definitely is a solid example of the modernization of the concept of a farmhouse as we know it, with some amazing touches of luxury decoration within every room. Join CovetED in this little tour through some of the home’s divisions.
The first impression one can get after a first look at the home of Piet Boon is of a home with a blend of minimalism alongside with a classic and timeless shape. The garden, a work made by garden designer Piet Oudolf, is a perfect geometrical composition of boxwood and hornbeam in the front display mainly. Moving to the back of the outside once can feel as though walking through a nature reserve. According to Boon himself, the garden of his Amsterdam house is “very layered, always revealing a new dimension, not giving away everything at once.”
What definitely makes the inside of the house unique in every division has to do with the fact that each of the rooms has a distinct atmosphere. Some of these rooms are even being complemented with furniture and art elements by bespoke names such as Maarten Baas, Studio Job, and Frederik Molenschot.
However, being the home of Piet Boon, a bespoke designer such as himself wouldn’t pass on the chance of introducing some of his own pieces to his own household, of course. One example we can point to is the Kekke dining chair (above), revested with quilted leather. Another is the console in the foyer (below), also a work by the designer, adorned with a Frederik Molenschot lamp and a painting by Marie Cecile Thijs, titled “Cat with White Collar I”.
In the living room, we can find the most pieces by Piet Boon such as the side table, lamp, and the sofa. The room is a perfect invitation for guests with an inviting coffee table made by Jerome Abel Seguin, as well as two other sitting options being the black-leather chairs by Italian designer Antonio Citterio. Citterio also provided Boon with a leather A.B.C. chair located in the master bedroom.
There’s always at least one element that is an immediate eye-catcher for those who are lucky enough to pay Boon a visit. In the bathroom (with a floor paved by Pietra Serena), there’s a semispherical Boffi Soaking Tub, with clean stoned shape appealing due to its fluent curve. Another example can be found in the study, where there’s a Norman Seeff photo of Mick Jagger leaning behind a book of Erwin Olaf photographs, giving a certain artistical inspiration many designers need during work.
