House Directory - Jay & Co. A lovely Bergere armchair reimagined with clean lines,
eye popping red detail, Clarke & Clarke recycled velvet and cutesy Timorous
Beasties fabric, £900. Whilst we spend a lot of time sympathetically restoring
each item, some natural wear and tear should still be expected – we believe this
adds to the general appeal of each item as it makes it truly unique.

ABOUT THIS FAIR

The Decorative Fair welcomes The House Directory to the Mezzanine this Spring for a fair-within-fair entitled Maker's Arena focusing on bespoke craftsmanship.

The Decorative Fair, London’s most beloved antiques, design and art event, returns to Battersea Park in the Spring from 7-12 May, with the addition of an exciting new fair-within-fair organised in conjunction with The House Directory, located on the mezzanine. 

The Spring Fair also has a focus on garden antiques and furniture, statuary and decorative objects.

The House Directory will present a hand-picked collection of established and emerging craft and bespoke focused home suppliers and services.

Plus: panel talks and workshops, showcase demonstrations by craftspeople and restorers in The House Directory community, and the launch of The Restoration Guide, a book about restorers, craftspeople and reuse, published with Salvo, the marketplace for architectural antiques.

This new mini-fair will complement the wide range of original antique design pieces and art offered for sale by The Decorative Fair’s 130+ exhibitors on the ground floor. 

In keeping with Battersea’s spirit of inspiration, a special Foyer Display will combine bespoke decoration with elements of antiques from dealers at the Fair.  It will have an Arts & Crafts-inspired feel, prompted by the inclusion of an iconic piece of Liberty London's architectural history currently for sale – a 1920s staircase and panelling from Liberty House.

Since The Decorative Fair was launched, at the height of the 1980s ‘country house/swags & tails’ interiors trend, it has sought to innovate and invigorate the antiques and design market.  Conceived as a new style of fair offering ‘antiques with design in mind’ to the interior decorating trade, the Fair has always offered a far broader range than any traditional art and antiques fair.

Now London’s largest and longest-running major antiques event, The Decorative Fair is pre-eminent in the industry and the sourcing mainstay of international decorators and designers – Martyn Lawrence Bullard recently described it as his favourite fair. 

Thirty-nine years since it launched, there is once again a ‘New Style Country House’ revival, and The Decorative Fair is the best place to source it from!  Lovers of modernism continue to shop at the Fair for 20th century classics by well-known architects and designers, and collectors and private buyers with a curious eye come for choice finds from every era.
