Following the smash hit launch in 2016, and now a firm fixture in the social calendar in the salubrious Bruton area, often called the Notting Hill of the South West, the 3rd Bruton Decorative Antiques Fair will take place from 19-21 October 2018 with some exciting new exhibitors and many eager returnees from 2017.
The luxurious and spacious venue of Haynes Motor Museum will be an interior design hub spot with more than 50 exhibitors dealing in decorative antiques and Mid Century design with an accent on home furnishing and embellishments. With a companion fair of the stature of Bath Decorative
Antiques Fair to match, the fair has been quick to establish its very own style and atmosphere and offers a hybrid of decorative antiques for house and garden, Country House furniture and humble folk art with Mid Century design attracting a sophisticated trade audience, interior designers and a fleet of smart home owners and collectors from the region and across the UK. The essence of a decorative fair is the artful curation of stands where exhibitors use all their talent to help visitors envision how pieces might be used and in some cases these are curious interpretations of random objects – antique dolls houses as cocktail cabinets, any possible object converted as lamps or planting vessels, huge illuminated shops signs as wall art, absolutely any garden related object or furniture brought indoors and architectural elements as accent pieces – no limit on size here
Followers of Bruton Decorative Antiques Fair will be delighted to hear that antiques industry celebrity Mark Hill, BBC Antiques Roadshow expert, author and lecturer will return to Bruton 2018 for a Mark Hill Takeover on Saturday 20 October. Visitors will be invited to join Mark as he leads
tours around the fair when he will engage in person with both his audience and exhibitors and followers on social media. Mark’s talks and advice will be streamed on social media channels throughout the day. With such an encyclopaedic knowledge of antiques and collectibles, Mark has a knack of
uncovering rare and interesting objects to delight and surprise his audience and sometimes the owner!
Owner of the fair Sue Ede: “We had such a fantastic Bruton debut at Haynes International Motor Museum in 2016 following much pent up demand from exhibitors for a companion fair to the revered Bath Decorative Antiques Fair celebrating its 30th edition next year. We are very much looking
forward to our 3rd edition at Bruton in October 2018.”
