"The reception room at Kanaal is line with books devoted to Mr. Vervoordt's vision as a dealer and decorator. In "Stories and Reflections," he describes how the Japanese aesthetic of wabi sums up his approach, embracing 'the spirit of thinking globally and acting locally.' "
--The New York Times

"If there were ever anyone who could humble Kanye West, it would be art dealer and interior designer Axel Vervoordt. In a recent interview for The Hollywood Reporter, the two artists exchanged ideas about the importance of proportions, the danger of ego, and their respective attitudes toward the creative process."
--Joyce Chen, Architectural Digest "As proved in new autobiographical book Stories and Reflections, [Axel is] an amusing and energetic raconteur. From a creative so esteemed for his discreet interiors and Hollywood client list, the storytelling twinkle in his eye indicates that Vervoordt is not to be pigeon-holed."
--Elle Decoration
