ABOUT THIS FAIR:

Whilst interior fashions have come and gone, the Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair has cheerfully ploughed its own distinct furrow, offering a relaxed, exciting and beautifully-styled environment to inspire customers, new and experienced.  Quite different to any other antiques fair in the UK, its informal vibe and friendly atmosphere is renowned internationally, as is its unique welcome to well-behaved dogs.  The thrice-yearly Decorative fair dates - next event 2-7 October 2018, are a firm fixture in the diaries of leading international designers and decorators and private buyers shopping for distinctive, unusual and individual items for their home.

Launched in 1985, it is still the is the foremost antiques event for the design trade. It was the first major London fair to combine formal and decorative antiques with art and accessories for the interior decorating buyer, and one of the earliest antiques events to introduce post-war and mid-century modern design, re-purposed antiques and contemporary art, and has always offered industrial and salvaged architectural antiques.

More than 160 dealers from across the UK and Europe congregate at the Autumn Fair, an important time in the design calendar to offer a fabulous array of antiques, works of art and decorative objects dating from the C17th to around 1970. This year, the Autumn Fair will broaden its scope further with the addition of a new section encompassing recent and contemporary fine design and the decorative and applied arts.

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

Japonism and Its Influence on European Interiors

The Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair aims to show visitors how to use period design in their own homes, and at each event, an eagerly anticipated Foyer Stand at the entrance to the Fair creates a vibrant, commercially-styled ‘look’ focusing on an aspect or period of design for sale from exhibitors. Using dealers stock, this Autumn the Foyer Stand will demonstrate the influence of Japonism on European interiors. 

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 an entranced audience.  The art they found in prints, lacquerware, carvings, and the decoration of ceramics, influenced the leaders of the Aesthetic Movement in Britain, the originators of Art Nouveau across the Continent, and in more recent times, minimalism.  All works displayed will be for sale.
