Studio HENK opens first international flagship store in Antwerp
Studio HENK opened their very first international flagship store in Antwerp on October 30th, 2020. In just a few short years, the Dutch furniture brand has rapidly grown into a renowned business with an Amsterdam showroom, online web shop, and presence in more than 50 international retailers. Their expansion into Antwerp – a beloved city for the company – is a step that founders Okke and Xander have been looking forward to for years.
The new flagship store is located on the famous Kloosterstraat in Antwerp, a location that is highly valued amongst design lovers due to its interior and vintage shops and its popular Sunday trading. The store is located in an impressive monumental building, with a classic style entrance that gives a hint of what awaits inside. The large space spans 450m2, with plenty of room to wander around and get inspired. The furniture transforms the room into a cosy and warm atmosphere, in line with the signature aesthetics of Studio HENK.
The Studio HENK collection is all about textures, soft shapes and materials. “In times like these when you want to make your home as comfortable as possible, tactility is essential. In our flagship stores you can feel all the fabrics, try out furniture and get inspired”, says Xander Albers, co-founder of Studio HENK. The store offers an inspiring experience for the senses, and a perfect opportunity to discover the world of Studio HENK.
A tactile experience:
In addition to its stores in Amsterdam and Antwerp, Studio HENK has a web shop with a 3D configurator. “With the help of the 3D configurator on our website, all possibilities can come to life. You can assemble and visualise your furniture to be completely customised to your wishes. In our stores you can then discover the touch, feel and high quality of the furniture which is something that is best experienced in real life. Our interior advisors are also available to give personal guidance in our stores and via private shopping and online interior advice sessions,” says co-founder Okke Albers.
The Studio HENK collection includes sofas and armchairs in rich woollen fabrics and dining tables in soft oak. There are also chairs, coffee tables, lighting and sideboards which are all available in different shapes, sizes and finishes. Each piece of furniture is designed to stimulate the senses and convey a sense of simplicity, tranquillity and comfort which we want to ensure will last for generations.
Due to the COVID-19 regulations in Belgium, the flagship store in Antwerp is closed until further notice. However customers can make an appointment for an online Private Shopping Session or make an appointment for an online Interior Advice Session with one of our experienced staff members in Antwerp. When the situation allows it, the new store will be open again from Tuesday to Sunday between 10am and 6pm. The large floor space offers enough space to be inspired safely and quietly – even in Covid-19 times. Studio HENK, Kloosterstraat 52-rechts, Antwerp (Belgium)
