ABOUT THIS FAIR:

The Winter edition of The Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair will be raising a glass to the new year when it opens in Battersea Park from 22-27 January 2019.

Inspired by fashionable 1950s and ‘60s nightspots, with a touch of deco glamour, the Winter Fair will present as its foyer display, The Cocktail Hour – showing visitors how to create a contemporary space for parties or a modern clubroom vibe.
Bar carts and trolleys evoke the era like no other furniture and are still enormously popular today alongside cocktail cabinets, serving trays, champagne buckets and glassware.

Expect to see a beautiful variety of antique and 20th century design drawn from sources around the world by more than 150 dealer exhibitors from the UK and Europe at this leading international event for the antiques and interior design market.

Designers and makers from the British Isles, Europe, Scandinavia, the Americas, Africa and Asia provide a peerless choice encompassing furniture, lighting, textiles, ceramics and porcelain, glass, natural history items, architectural elements, and garden artefacts and seating. Works of art from all periods to the contemporary – paintings, prints and sculpture – are an important element in the mix.

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

The Decorative Fair is a bellweather for future trends and at the Autumn 2018 event 2-7 October, private buyers and interior designers were busy searching for unusual and formal ‘brown’ furniture of all eras, from Georgian bow-fronted mahogany chests of drawers to late Victorian glazed bookcases in dark golden oak and mid-century sideboards and cabinets in walnut or exotic woods. In times of austerity the market will be drawn to pieces of intrinsic value and traditional English antique furniture represents an excellent investment at present with chance to own an exquisitely crafted and historic piece at a price similar to a newly-made item from a high street designer store.  This trend is heralding what the antiques trade are hoping for - brown furniture back in the spotlight!

As well as the eco-friendly credentials of antiques, buyers can see how easily the rich, lived-in patina of antique wood can work with modern interior schemes, complementing both soft and rich colour schemes. The warm tones of wood also work wonderfully well with patterned wallpaper without distracting from it.

Painted antique furniture continues to be a strong theme at the Decorative Fair; and has been a keynote since the Fair launched in 1985 and made its name as the go-to event for chic informal decorative pieces.

Dealers continue to offer an unparalleled mix of fine and rare pieces with original paint and decoration from the 18th and early 19th centuries, alongside more practical everyday items presented in what the trade terms “country house condition” (i.e. retaining an un-restored state) that have been well-loved over the years, and thus retain a lifetime of character.

The Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair is a serious source of accessories, especially mirrors of every style, and lighting; from antique to mid-twentieth century table lamps, floor lamps, wall lights, modernist ceiling lights and crystal chandeliers. Specialist dealers are also at the fair offering Daum, Gallé, Vannes and Murano glass, antique and vintage glassware and ceramics for everyday use at table including French creamware crockery and Constance Spry floristry ware, traditional blue and white china and cabbageware, colourful Scandinavian glass vases, and collections that make wonderful ‘tablescapes’: geometric shapes, fossils, antique corals, mineral obelisks, eccentricities such as antique dog collars, Staffordshire figures, brass candlesticks, sets of decorative antique books, plaster busts and wall plaques, small treen and folk art, scholastic sets of carefully-constructed mushrooms and plants, natural history items and taxidermy, and traditional porcelain figures and animals.

The Winter Fair is further embellished by LARTA - The London Antique Rug & Textile Art Fair which takes place on the Mezzanine throughout the week. Tickets to the Decorative include free entry to LARTA.
