Why Hapax is different

Creative vision supporting individuality

Our living spaces should express our personality, reflect our values and align with our lifestyle – as opposed to a facsimile of someone else’s style or the generic interiors portrayed on social media. Creating a space thoughtfully starts by defining your vision and motivations for change.

While every project is unique and tailored around the individual’s needs and aspirations, they are all considered with the same innovative thought and uncompromising commitment from beginning to end.

Inspired by nature

There is incredible poetry to the raw and transient beauty of nature. Tones, shapes and textures brought from the natural world instantly add depth and visual interest to an interior. Now more than ever, it is relevant to pay attention to how pieces are made and where materials are sourced from. The changing light throughout the day and seasons, the surrounding landscape and the scents all play a part in how we experience a space.

Timeless simplicity

Hapax product sourcing steers away from mass production. One of the brand pillars consists of promoting craftsmanship, independent businesses and reconditioned furniture. Investing in pieces that have history and tell stories brings character to an interior and cannot be faked.

Belgian Heritage

While Belgium has been on the cutting edge of the fashion industry for decades, the national interior design sphere has recently emerged as one of the most world-renowned. Following the steps of Axel Vervoordt, Vincent Van Duysen and many other talented compatriots, Hapax advocates understated luxury. Refinement and simplicity aren’t mutually exclusive: Hapax strives to strike the delicate balance between lived-in and dignified spaces by means of a pared-back style that doesn’t sacrifice warmth or comfort.

Materiality sparks emotional resonance


Decluttering – Proving assistance to private clients in defining a purpose for each room and creating visual breathing space. Simplifying the environment enables us to appreciate what’s most important.

Conceptual development – Creating a compelling visual story aligned with individual goals and values, using boards/layout plans.

Curating – Building an intentional collection of authentic and meaningful pieces, thereby enhancing the overall narrative of the space.

Sourcing – Ensuring that furnishings are aligned with the brief, budget and values. Hapax is committed to supporting small independent businesses, craftsmanship and sustainability.

Styling – Creating memorable interiors that tell the story of their owner using the science and art of composition.

Decorating – Upscaling spaces and adding a touch of drama with covetable pieces, frictional pairings and intriguing proportions.

Finishes – Assisting in the final stages of a project and ensuring that the creative output exceeds expectations.


“Severine has a knack for envisioning the narrative of a room. She listened attentively to our needs and created more intention within our space. Now, we have rooms that serve different purposes and align with our family lifestyle. She made the most of what we already owned and even sold me on the Scandinavian sofa my husband wanted so badly; I didn’t think it would work in our house but she made it all happen!”
