The BADA Antiques & Fine Art Fair

The BADA Antiques & Fine Art Fair is the showcase for members of the British Antique Dealers’ Association, representing the UK's leading specialists in the fine and decorative arts. The BADA Fair has an unrivalled reputation for quality and elegance and is located in one of London's most fashionable districts.

 

The art and antiques for sale ranges from 16th century works of art to contemporary furniture, all vetted to ensure quality and authenticity. Collectors and first-time buyers alike are attracted from around the world to the BADA Fair at The Duke of York Square, London SW3 from 18–24 March 2015.

 

 

What's on in the area

 

The BADA Fair is proud to call one of London’s most fashionable and romantic boroughs its home. With the globally famous shopping street King’s Road being joined recently by the luxury Duke of York Square shopping and cultural development, the area continues to be known for upmarket shopping, luxury hotels and world class culture. Its glamour continues to attract visitors from all over the world.

 

 

London has been one of the world’s most exciting and culturally stimulating cities for much of its 2000 year history. In the 18th Century, it was the great writer Samuel Johnson who uttered the (now perhaps cliqued) phrase that “when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford." And as we head into the 21st Century its vibrancy shows no signs of abating.

 

 

The Saatchi Gallery,  Cadogan Concert Hall and The Royal Court Theatre are all located within minutes of the BADA Fair.

 

 

The Organisers of the BADA Fair 2015 are delighted to bring you a preview of selected highlights of exhibits from this year's Fair.

'Not so Shabby Chic: Juxtaposing the Old and New'

With Viv Lawes, curator, NADFAS lecturer and arts journalist.

 

The apparently effortless style of great collectors combining the old and new in their homes is hard to emulate. Viv Lawes unravels the combinations that work, exploring display in historical collections such as that of the Earls of Harewood at Harewood House, Leeds, and discusses the visual characteristics of successfully eclectic arrangements.

 

 

Event B:  Friday 20 March at 11.15am

'Hollywood Style - Jewellery and Fashion from 1929 to 1959'

With Andrew Prince, jewellery designer.

 

Hollywood has always been instrumental in creating dreams and Gods. Between 1929 and 1959 a style developed that is still revered today for its beauty and captivating elegance. Andrew Prince explains this extraordinary period, where, in the face of war and struggle, the great designers produced their finest work and dreams came true.

 

 

Event C: Monday 23 March at 11.15am 

'The Hidden Treasures of Lichfield Cathedral'

With Dr John Goodall, Architectural Editor, Country Life.

To celebrate the re-installation of the glorious 16th century Herkenrode glass, following major renovation works, Dr John Goodall talks about Lichfield Cathedral, Britain’s only three-spired medieval cathedral and an architectural treasure trove of international importance.
