De Koolputten in Waasmunster is an all-in-one bistro, B&B, exhibition space and party hall with a priceless view on river the Durme. The name Koolputten (literally: coal well) was chosen because there used to be a large coal company including a mansion and popular inn on this site, which by the 1980s had fallen into disrepair. A descendant of the family behind the coal company bought the domain and had it restored into a multi-purpose recreation space.
"The rooms got a modern, yet authentic look."
Seghers-Setisol was made responsible for the decoration of the site and chose to partner up with Di Legno for their reliable products and expertise in wood. In total, approximately 385 m² of double-layer, 403 m² of three-layer parquet and a large staircase in the Pimonte finish were installed.
Wooden boards were used for the floors and desk surfaces in all of the eight rooms in the B&B. The floor, ceiling and staircase wall in the party room were also given a makeover in wood, which gives the rooms a modern, yet authentic look. By using the same kind of wood, there is a nice and seamless flow between the rooms in the building.
