Artists are generous and some have transformed spaces in an amazing way. Christo, Andy Warhol, Jean Cocteau, Andrea Zittel, Kurt Schwitters, Louise Bourgeois, to name but a few. Some of these artists practices encompass housing and all aspects of day-to-day life design, including furniture, furnishings, clothing and even food. For others, space is an ongoing endeavour to better understand human nature and the social construction of need.
With this in mind 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, welcome. A place where guests are surrounded by artistic images and ideas that can override one’s framework for understanding the world. It is the combination of home and works of art that challenge the perception and this is the first principle of Home to Contemporary Art.
SEA Foundation and BnB Tilburg have their home base in a 1930s Amsterdam School style building right in the city centre of Tilburg. The location is close to the Tilburg theatres, cinemas and music venues like 013 and the concert hall. 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 is set amidst contemporary art in a striking decor.
Our guests appreciate the authenticity and the attention paid to detail. As one of the guests remarked: “As I left Bed and Breakfast Tilburg, I noticed it felt like saying goodbye to new friends. I had a wonderful time in an adorable home.”
After a good night’s sleep, a sumptuous breakfast awaits you. It is served on the terras in the lush garden, 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. Morning meals are accompanied by eggs cooked to your liking, juice from oranges squeezed by hand, homemade jams, cured meats or if you prefer, vegetarian treats. Everything organic, of course.
