The Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair

The Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair has led the way as the antiques event for interior design, and was the first in the UK to offer a ‘look’ for decorating.  From relatively modest beginnings in 1985, we have grown to encompass more than 140 exhibitors from across the UK and Europe.

Expect to find a wealth of wonderful period design: anything from £15 vintage French wine glasses to valuable paintings by well-known modern British and contemporary artists such as Barbara Hepworth and David Hockney, Peter Blake and Banksy.

Antiques dating from the 17th century to 1914 abound. Art Deco, post-war and later 20th century design makes up around one quarter of objects and furniture for sale. Unlike traditional antiques fairs, our dealers style their stands as room-sets so visitors can imagine how items might work in their own homes. Detailed information about the variety of stock is given below.

A packing, delivery and export service is provided by Simon Hall Shipping Limited; upholstery and curtain-making services from E & A Wates; bespoke room panelling by L’Atelier Paul Armstrong, and an extensive selection of design reference books from Don Kelly.

We are a dog-friendly event, although we do require dogs to be kept on a lead at all times when inside the venue.
