Artists are generous and some have created and transformed amazing spaces. Christo, Andy Warhol, Jean Cocteau, Andrea Zittel, Kurt Schwitters, Louise Bourgeois, to name but a few. Some encompass housing and all aspects of day-to-day life, design home furniture, clothing and even food. For others, space becomes an ongoing endeavour to better understand human nature and the social construction of need.
SEA Foundation’s founders, Dutch artist duo VanGerven|VanRijnberk, have created Home to Contemporary Art. In this domestic and artistic environment travellers encounter a warm, though to begin with a somewhat unfamiliar place. A place were you, as our guest, are surrounded by artistic images and ideas that can override your framework for understanding the world. It is the combination of home and artwork that challenges the perception, which is the first principle of Home to Contemporary Art.
SEA Foundation and BnB Tilburg have their home base in a fine 1930s Amsterdam School style building right in the city centre of Tilburg. The location is close to theatres, cinemas, museums and music venues. The small-scale BnB offers a unique and luxurious environment. A fabulous experience and memorable encounter with contemporary art, combined with refined luxuries, such as ultra smooth, pure cotton sateen sheets and a bath for two. All this set amidst contemporary art in a striking decor.
Our guests appreciate the hospitality, the authenticity and attention paid to detail, as one of the guests remarked: “As I left Bed and Breakfast Tilburg, I noticed it felt as if I had been home, got together with new friends and meanwhile was transformed.”
After a good night’s sleep, a sumptuous sunny breakfast awaits you served at the terras in the lush garden or in the salon or in the gallery. You will be served oven fresh rolls from the best baker in Tilburg, slow coffee made by your hosts, accompanied by fresh eggs, juice from oranges squeezed by hand, homemade jams, cured meats or if you prefer, vegetarian treats. Everything organic, of course.
