WHEN CRAFT MEETS DESIGN!
Your Place For Now is a concept store that will astonish at the first sight! Why? It’s a labour of love. Love for beautiful objects, for travel, and for people who create.
In Your Place For Now you will find a range of furniture created by various designers, home decoration, fashion accessories and jewelry.
One day Fabienne - Your Place For Now founder and curator of the collection – returned from a trip to Mexico and decided to change her life. Moved by the quality of design she found there and the passion and creativity of the designers she met, she decided to create a space to share it with other people back home in Belgium. A place that is at once a concept store and a gallery.
The current collection is entirely dedicated to Mexican and Belgian artists and a field of contemporary art which is barely acknowledged in the European market.
All the objects which you find here have their own story and soul. They are durable, of excellent quality, made by young designers respecting their traditions and following fair trade rules.

What’s the popup store about ?
"It’s way more than a simple store. It is at once a store and the gallery… dedicated to art from here, but first of all, from the other countries. Each year I dedicate my space to one country. Each month I present one designer, one creator or one artist.
I love travelling. I love searching and I always follow my gut feeling. I’m passionate about discovering and sharing my discoveries, surprising others but first of all, presenting the artists who imagined and created such beautiful things."
Why did you start with Mexico ?
"Excellent question. People ask me that very often.
I think that our vision of Mexico is quite clichéd…We have those stereotype objects in mind – like sombreros, ponchos and mariachis with big moustaches! Even my friends were trying to convince me that Mexico wouldn’t be the best choice. But again..I stuck to my gut feeling and I was right. Now, everybody is surprised how rich and diverse this country is!
Mexico isn’t just a holiday’s destination. This country is astonishing, filled with creativity which we don’t know well yet.
Of course, I’d love to share, to surprise but mainly, to tell the stories about those people, the way the work, product, function..that’s one of the main reasons I’ve decided to open it as a gallery as well."
What country is next on your map ?
"Every year, I will present a new country, that’s clear. As, during the lockdown I couldn't travel, I started looking for the hidden gems of Belgian Design and included them in our collection. It doesn’t mean that each year I will switch completely to something else and stop collaborating with previous countries and artists. So, of course you can still find the best-selling designers from the Mexican Collection. They will always be welcome to present their new pieces.
Thus, the collection itself will always evolve, will follow new destinations and bring new hidden gems…"
