The Decorative Fair Battersea {vintage & antique finds}


The thrice yearly Decorative Antiques and Textile Fair at Battersea (currently running: 24-29th April) is always on my “to do” list. Not least because it’s a dog friendly environment so I can take Milo but it is a great place to source unusual vintage and antiques for your home.  There are around 140 exhibitors and quite often some affordable pieces tucked in amongst the pricier showstoppers. Yesterday I picked up a chair for a project from Omnipod and my colleague purchased some lamps from Interior Eden. I was quite taken with some pieces at Fiona McDonald and also the gorgeous oversized mirror and lanterns at Matthew Cox Antiques. 

I’ve certainly picked up a few things there myself and have a gorgeous brass table in my own home from Interior Eden who regularly attends the fair.  I know that my hubby would like a like a sword cane from Geoffrey Breeze and would enthuse about some of the industrial items at Angell Antiques.

  1. Ooh that looks so nice. Not a fusty old antiques fair but everything laid out very appealingly! When's the next one?

    1. Annie the next one is 2nd- 7th October 2012. It's also great inspiration for styling ideas. Most people make such an effort to display their wares well.... They also have a drinks trolley after 6pm doing the rounds selling wine! Need you anymore excuses....
