ABOUT THIS FAIR:

After 29 years, the Bath Decorative Antiques Fair is still the leading regional event to beat, where rustic to refined ultra-relevant stylish English Country House style,  Mid Century design, industrial chic, Swedish painted furniture, period portraits and perennially fashionable crusty iron garden furniture will rub shoulders with decorative staples of the 80s and 90s now back in demand by a new and younger audience – French marble top chocolatiers’ tables, elaborate brass and steel bakers’ racks, buffets and armoires in fruitwood, huge pine refectory tables and Windsor chairs, rows of yellow confit pots, pub signs, marine and advertising ephemera, homely Staffordshire dogs, samplers and quilts and yes, large scale oak, mahogany and walnut brown furniture re-imagined by a new generation of decorators and collectors.

The event has remained at the same wonky Bath Pavilion since the launch back in 1989 and quickly fills up with eager exhibitors each year, keen to secure a place at what is reliably expected to be a busy event teeming with buyers from the UK, EU and USA happy to queue up for hours in all weathers before the doors open at 12 midday.

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

New for 2018 will be Antiques Young Gun Matt Dixon of Tall Boy Interiors, still in his early 20s but blazing a trail in the trade and loving every minute of it with his eclectic stock which has a reclamation decorative crossover.  New from Kent is King George Antiques, who specialises in library furniture and Country House pieces and Anthemion Antiques from Leominster who deal in decorative pieces for the home and garden. 

The majority of the exhibitors are returnees many of whom have been at the fair since the early days including Cherrie & Michael Todd, and Terry and Marie Kelly, Somerset and Appledore Antiques, Devon all dealing in early English Folk Art and pottery and country furniture, joined by relative newcomers Erna Hiscock & John Shepherd, Kent who deal in the same genre.  From farther afield come The Archives from Belgium with decorative furniture and unusual accessories and glass, Bohm’s Antiek from Sweden with painted Swedish provincial furniture and Mark Blower Antiques, Channel Islands, with period portraits, colonial antique furniture and accessories.

 

The fair takes place at the very beginning of Spring and exhibitors always go to town with antiques for the garden. Linda North, Hertfordshire, will as usual have a stand heavily laden, bursting with urns, jardinieres, wirework garden furniture, statuary and objects.  Linda Townshend Bateson, Jacqueline Hall both Tetbury, will also show a wide range of antiques for the garden with decorative antiques from the UK and France. 

Returning after a successful debut in 2017 will be Joe Chaffer of Vagabond Antiques, Petworth who deals in an expertly curated mix of Old World Country House pieces with decorative antiques for the garden. Large scale shop counters, dressers and antiques for the garden will be showcased by Kent dealers Elham Antiques.

Not Wanted on Voyage, Oxford, return with the large selection of Mid Century design, art and upholstery and Mary Hossack of Life England, Somerset, London, will have an artful mix of Mid Century design and decorative antiques with an emphasis on upholstered antique chairs and sofas for which the company is known. A northern contingent will be descending on Bath this year with Molly & Maud’s Place, York, decorative country furniture, garden and architectural pieces, DJ Green Antiques, Sheffield, French and English decorative antiques for the home and garden, and Chris Holmes Decorative Antiques, Harrogate, rustic and decorative antiques for the home and garden, showing with Chloe Holt who will bring her original contemporary oils framed in antique frames.  Other art dealers at the fair include Granta Fine Art with C20th Modern and Contemporary Art, Larkhall Fine Art with 19th and 20th century master prints by artists from around the world.
Nordic contemporary design will be well represented by Swedish by Design, Dorset and Nordic antique painted furniture from Elizabeth Lee, Somerset. Wharton Antiques, Somerset, will bring a mixture of architectural elements, fire surrounds, decorative accessories and decorative accessories for home and garden.

The Fair is partnering with the prestigious Gainsborough Bath Spa Hotel for their competition this year and 2 lucky people will have the chance to win a luxury overnight stay with dinner - details via the Bath Decorative Antiques Fair website.
