Founder Steven Beunens has a passion for design and stylish interiors. Trained as an artisan furniture maker and construction architect he started his own company and knows how to apply his creativity in just the right direction. Houses, shops, catering businesses, offices in my own region, apartments and flats in Saint Tropez, Monaco, London, Spain, Germany…: each client gets the same service.
What interior projects do you all take on?
Steven Beunens: “We make no distinction. We furnish ‘homes’, shops and catering businesses, as well as offices and flats. We furnish houses, shopsand catering establishments, as well as offices and flats. Both in new buildings and renovated ones, expansion of existing homes and so forth, both here in Belgium and abroad. We even do pool houses and outdoor projects.”
“We take care of all the food stands in the Ghelamco Arena we recently built the Porsche-stands at the WTA tournament in Stuttgart. Our expertise is a fantastic trump.”
“I am a furniture maker and an architect, but I often collaborate on projects with other architects, regular partners or the architect of your choice. Thanks to my training I know what it’s about and that produces good results. Generally we design modern interiors with classic materials, such as slate, marble, oak or walnut. This is a style that speaks to people in their thirties and forties but also to older clients.”
A new step is the development of your own furniture?
“We are starting our own brand with Piet Goddaer. It will be called Casaumana. Our mobile indoor/outdoor kitchens and bars will be distributed under this brand name. ‘Enlarge your Space with mobile Furniture, Indoor design for outdoor use’ is what we call that! And we construct our outdoor bars ourselves from the same types of materials: teak, stainless steel, composite stone and Corian bu DuPont. And we remain creative in other areas: At the Grand Market of Oudenaarde we opened the ‘Moonshine Coyote’, a trendy lounge bar with an SB Business lounge room, outdoor cooking and cocktails in Bar Casaumana and also a private room for receptions or seminars.”
The showroom and model apartment in Oudenaarde are a showcase for your skill?
“Since 2009 we have used our showroom to present furniture by Dirk Wynants (Extremis) and Piet Boon, hand-tufted rugs from Tom’s Factory, art by Jean Degryse and so forth. But now we are developing, along with our outdoor kitchen bars, our own furniture, including chairs, functional tables and armchairs, among other things, produced in own own workshop in Oudenaarde. Thus our airchairs and even tables have handy storage spaces!”
