Frederic Collette, designer, Collect Furniture
I am originally from Belgium and all my childhood, I lived in Luxemburg. Here my mother remarried with a Dane when I was 4. Every summer after this, we spend about 1 month in Denmark. I remember it being so wonderfully exotic to me. I was fascinated by all those modern interiors, it felt so futuristic to me! I also loved the freedom: not being told what to do all the time and running around naked with the other kids playing and picking fruits and vegetables. All the adults were so easy going compared to back home. Turning 16 years old, I moved to Denmark with my mother, sisters and stepfather – never to leave again!
