Commercial project by Lefèvre Interiors


Last Friday, one of my favorite stores, the women’s boutique BOTTHY opened its doors at its new location. Since many years this store is based in the city of Geraardsbergen (Belgium).
The owners had the opportunity to purchase a beautiful property, very close to the current location of the existing store, giving their customers the opportunity to shop in a more comfortable way and in a very pleasant, urban contemporary atmosphere.

We were of course very honored when the owners enabled our company  to participate in the  realisation of their new store’s concept.
I am very pleased to share with you today pictures of the result of this huge transformation.

The owners wished to see an interior that certainly is not overloaded and wanted to retain as much as possible the authentic elements of the property. They wished to combine fair, fine materials, textures and colors, matching a contemporary store concept. Steel and wood are recurring materials, throughout the store.
All cabinetry, wooden display shelving, fitting rooms and counters are executed in the workshop of our company.
