WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

Diversity and inspiration are key to The Decorative Fair, and the well established Foyer Stand exhibition for Autumn 2018 will demonstrate the influence of Japonism on European art and interiors.

Visitors will have the chance to see how decoration from this important period might be used in today’s interiors with the vibrant, commercially-styled ‘look’ re-imagined using specialist exhibitors' stock (for sale at the fair).

Anthony Outred Ltd - The great wave processional trunk, late Edo period, Circa 1830.  This magnificent red lacquer trunk with its continuous wave is as artistically relevant today as it was 180 years ago when it was created. Priced at £78,000.


From the 1850s when Japan opened its ports after 200 years as a closed country, Japanese art and objects flooded in to Europe, eagerly collected by a captivated audience. Japan’s artistic styles - in prints, lacquerware, carvings, ceramics - influenced many Western artists and designers: the Impressionists, the Arts & Crafts and Aesthetic Movements, the Glasgow School and Charles Rennie Mackintosh (this year marks the 150th anniversary of his birth), Liberty stores in London, and the originators of Art Nouveau styles across the Continent. Since the mid-20th century Japanese design has had a strong influence on minimalism. All works in the Foyer Stand are drawn from dealers at the Fair and are for sale. Displayed will be examples of Glasgow School and Aesthetic Period British furniture, Seccessionist designs from Austria, Art Nouveau decorative arts, and mid-century pieces alongside their inspiration - period examples of Japanese design, art and furniture. A small selection of 20th century and contemporary Japanese works will also be featured.
