The Battersea Park event, which has catered to the interior decorating market since 1985, welcomes more than 130 dealers to its venue of Evolution London.
A special display dedicated to rococo is planned for the foyer, with pieces paying homage to the exuberant French style selected from exhibitor’s stock.
This edition also welcomes several new dealers bringing a range of decorative pieces to spruce up the home including rugs, English and continental furniture, Louis Vuitton luggage, vintage vases, Korean Contemporary art, folk art and British sculpture.
Debutants include Spitalfields House; The Swedish Rug Company; Schmid McDonagh; King & Country; Han Collection; Lawrence Prentice Art & Antiques; Ken Bolan Studio and Flora Black.
Another addition to the venue this autumn is Tribal Art London, which runs concurrently with The Decorative Fair. The event, which specialises in original tribal and ethnographic art and artefacts, has moved from its previous home in The Mall and will be based on the mezzanine with 15 dealers signed up for the fair’s 16th edition.
Photography, African mid-century art, tribal textiles, African, Oceanic, Aboriginal and Asian antiquities will all feature.
“Tribal Art London has always prided itself on being a close-knit community of dealers and experts, and we know the friendly atmosphere engendered at Battersea by The Decorative Fair and its exhibitors will suit us, as well as our clients”, said TAL fair director, Victoria Rogers.
