Eight Rooms by Ellen DeGeneres' Favorite Interior Designer

Antiques dealer and interior designer Axel Vervoordt has been called one of the "world's most influential tastemakers," but mere words pale in comparison to another imprimatur his work has been stamped with: he seems to be the favorite interior designer of well-known decor fanatic Ellen DeGeneres'.

Or at least one of her very favorites. Case in point:

· She and Portia own one of his tables.
· He was no. 9 on a list of things she "can't live without," on which occasion she wrote "I admire his designs—anything and everything he does."
· This pin.
· She once, upon meeting him, called herself his biggest fan, and told him the moment was "so inspirational. It was really a dream of mine to meet you."
· A list of her favorite books on goop was 3/5 books by and about Axel Vervoordt. (1/2 if you count her upcoming book, which she plugged at the end.) To goop, she said Vervoordt "is kind of everything: Every time I think I'm finally done with a room, I open one of Axel's books and am inspired to start over completely."

That settled? Here's a handful of rooms he designed.
