More than 160 dealers are taking part in the largest-ever Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair, starting on 27th September to 2nd October in Battersea Park, London.
The organisers say they will welcome around 10 new exhibitors, including Rupert Cavendish Antiques with an exciting collection of Biedermeier and Art Deco furniture and carpets; Julian Simon Fine Art, with English and Continental paintings from the 18th to mid-20th centuries particularly large scale works and flower paintings; and Fine & Vintage, specialists in vintage leather suitcases and briefcases, and vintage trunks including Louis Vuitton and Goyard.
The Fair’s foyer display theme will be Scandi Days and Nordic Nights, showcasing classic 18th and 19th century styles with chic 20th century design, from Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland. All the items are drawn from exhibitors at the Fair will also be on sale. Two room-sets are designed to capture the moods of dreamy, light-infused Midsummer days, and indigo Winter nights glowing with the vivid colours of the aurora borealis.
Exhibitors from across the UK as well as France, Spain and The Netherlands participate at the Decorative Fair. Furniture, design and art for sale originates mainly from Great Britain and Continental Europe, especially France, Italy and Scandinavia. Furniture by Brazilian and American post-war designers is gaining in recognition and popularity with decorators, while art, antiques and works of art can be found from Russia, the Middle East and Asia, and tribal pieces from far-flung corners of the globe.
In past years, the Fair has welcomed celebrities including Adele, David and Victoria Beckham, and Lord Lloyd Webber.
