ABOUT THIS FAIR:

With the Christmas and New Year festivities consigned to the rear view mirror and as the dreary days of mid-winter stretch ahead, the Winter Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair 23-28 January 2018, with its laid back ambience and aisles of colourful temptation is just the place to sweep away the blues and enjoy some cheerful interiors inspiration.

For a decorative pick-me-up or a full-on new decorating project for the home, the event of choice for design professionals and buyers in-the-know is the Winter edition of the Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair in Battersea Park - a luxurious feast of fine and fun period design, augmented every January by the colourful specialist rug and textile fair, LARTA.

The Winter Edition 2018 celebrates the Silk Route in the now eagerly awaited foyer exhibition with the theme of ‘orientalism’, highlighting how Eastern design travelled the Silk Route to infiltrate our interiors.  Furniture, fabrics and objects from, and influenced by, ‘the Orient’ will be for sale in the foyer stand, styled to showcase a collection of items from the 150 specialist antiques, art and 20th century design dealers taking part in the Fair. The theme is artfully connects to the London Antique Rug & Textile Fair which now has a permanent home on the Mezzanine floor at the Evolution Marquee for its annual event.  This specialist fair devoted to woven art embellishes the choice available to visitors to the Decorative Fair and ties in perfectly with the theme of the artefacts brought to our shores via the Silk Route.

The Decorative Fair Battersea takes place three times a year, and offers a fabulous variety of antique and 20th century decoration to the interior designer and private buyer.  Uniquely different, this interiors extravaganza is popular with the UK and international trade as well as style-savvy customers looking for unusual one-off pieces for their homes. Collectors also love to attend, finding rarities and fine art.

ANF Top Pick for The Decorative Fair Winter Edition 2018: 

Adam Calvert Bentley:

A pair of exquisite early Victorian painted tripod tables -  The square tops with canted corners carved to simulate fringed drapery, raised on leaf-carved columns and triple scroll feet; painted white picked out in pale blue.

Provenance: Lady Wardington, Wardington Mannor, Banbury, Oxfordshire, c 1840, priced at £2800.

A rising star in the decorative trade, and a member of Antiques Young Guns,  Adam Calvert Bentley started his business just two years ago when he joined forces with Lucinda Chetwode.
