At the Art & Antiques Fair in Olympia, the Search for the Perfect Object

Whether you’re passionate about furniture from the 1600s or you want to stop and contemplate a krater which is approximately 2400 years old and comes from an ancient Greek colony, decorated with Pythons, with it over fifty-thousand pieces, the Art & Antiques Fair in Olympia could be the right place for a day of shopping and discovering the United Kingdom’s most prestigious antiques fair. From 20 to 27 June, in fact, among old favourites - like Anthony James, Craig Carrington, Anthony Fell, Joanna Booth, Raffaello Pernici - and new exhibitors - such as the Galerie Hurtebize of Cannes and the Galerie du Manoir of Paris - this highly awaited event for those passionate about design and antiques is expected to bring twenty-thousand visitors and 160 dealers into the City. With Baccarat vases inspired by ancient Greek motifs, table-lighters by Alfred Dunhill, Art Deco sculptures, a golden Boucheron bracelet from 1940 and an engraved mahogany sofa designed by John Taylor, the choices are seemingly limitless. The fair is now part of the House & Garden Festival, held from 20 to 24 June. Creating a definitive destination for those passionate about luxury and interior design, this event brings together offerings that range from ancient to contemporary, with particular detail paid to artisan and high-quality works, from design to gardens.
