Love the low-key luxe look of Belgian design masters such as Vincent Van Duysen and Axel Vervoordt? Here are 10 ideas for getting the vibe (a few budget options included). Above: All of us at Remodelista are obsessed with Vincent Van Duysen's living room. See more in yesterday's post 20 Questions: Julianne Moore and Vincent Van Duysen Talk Design .

Above: The flatweave, black-and-off-white striped Stockholm Rug from Ikea is available in two sizes; the large (8 feet 2 inches by 11 feet 6 inches) is $299 and the small (5 feet 7 inches by 7 feet 10 inches) is $199. Above: We like the way Vincent Van Duysen's curtains pool romantically on the floor.  Linen Cotton Curtains from West Elm do the trick (prices start at $59); available in white, ivory, flax, and gray. Above: Founded by Belgium-born Tom Verellen in 1999, the Verellen Home Collection features pieces reminiscent of Axel Vervoordt's slipcovered designs. Based in High Point, North Carolina, Verellen makes all its furniture from solid maple hardwood with doweled joinery; the linen slipcovers are sewn by dressmakers. To find a dealer, go to Verellen . The Thibault Sofa , shown above, is $5,375 from Hudson Boston. Above: The Lumina Daphine Tavolo, designed by Tommaso Cimini in 1975, is possibly the most elegant lamp in the world, beautiful, simple, functional, and timeless. The Lumina Daphine Tavolo Table Light is $475 and the Lumina Daphine Terra Floor Lamp is $575, from Richard Ostell. Above: The Benson Sawhorse Coffee Table is available in three sizes and three finishes (black, brown, and natural reclaimed oak); prices start $1,115 from Restoration Hardware. Above: An essential feature of the Belgian look: wide-plank pale oak floors. Dinesen sets the standard; see World's Most Beautiful Wood Floors . Above: The 3.5-inch-tall  Michael Verheyden T Light in alabaster, made in Belgium, is $65 from Garde, in Los Angeles.   Above: Source a Turkish kilim floor cushion like this Kilim Kidney Pillow for $157.50 at Rummage in the US, and at Germany's  Kuhfelle Online . Above: The 20-inch-tall  Henan Lamp from Jayson Home & Garden is $295.
