Fun Finds at the Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair

A slight delay getting this post up, but better late than never! I visited the Winter Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair in Battersea Park in London last week and came across some amazing finds!

From antique French Bergère chairs to feather-clad lamp shades, there was so much to see and so much I wanted to take home! Photos from the event and my favourite vendors are below.

Furniture & Textiles

These sophisticated yet rustic chairs would look fantastic in a formal sitting room.
I loved these antique french sofas – so versatile!
These two beech framed ottomans were my favorite items on display at the fair. I loved both of the fabrics – they’re vintage welsh blankets! If I had a space that was big enough, I would have purchased one on the spot from David Bedale.
Loved the color combination of the fabric on this ottoman! Both ottomans would be perfect additions to a  ski chalet in Aspen or the Alps.

Chotskies & Art

Antique games, napkin rings, candlesticks, picture frames, and small silver items were all on display and available for sale. The fair was also a great place to pick up some artwork, particularly oil paintings.

The fair was a great place to pick up small silver items too.
These beautiful bone chess pieces were on display with countless antique games. The vendor, Luke Honey, ships internationally and has a wide assortment of backgammon boards, chess boards, and mahjong tiles.
SVR Antiques, Art & Design had a large collection of small items from these bull salt and pepper shakers to miniature bowls and antique bottle stoppers.
SVR Antiques’ stand was like exploring a treasure trove
The Parker Gallery had a large selection of their english pastoral and hunting scenes on display. The Parker Gallery Ltd are dealers and agents in Old Master & British paintings, based in London. They offer paintings and drawings from a broad range of periods and schools and they ship internationally.

Best Stands

I always like to make note of my favourite stands at exhibitions and fairs. Three vendors stood out to me in particular on this trip:

Sue Norman‘s blue and white china display was impressive and delightfully cheerful. She ships internationally and has a large collection of blue and white plates, platters, planters, and transferware.
Malby Maps LTD had a great display of antique maps, globes, prints, and frames. They ship internationally and are true experts in the field.
Antiques by Design had an artfully curated stand that was reminiscent of a hunting cabin filled with items that were inspired by the outdoors. Guy Trench uses a combination of antiques, reclaimed items, and old materials to create beautiful and unique interior and exterior pieces.
