“At our Brook Street showrooms we once again have the opportunity to show
how this works in reality, and by taking the painting out of
Jenna Burlingham’s gallery and into our historic rooms you can see how exciting this style of decoration can be.”

– Philip Hooper, design director for Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler –

A-Gent of Style would like to inform you of a special collaboration opening tomorrow that should not be missed. 

Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler are delighted to present a forthcoming exhibition From the Gallery to the Room, in association with Jenna Burlingham Fine Art.
The exhibition will be held at the company’s historic 39 Brook Street, Mayfair premises from 17-27 June, 2014. “The exhibition gives us the opportunity to show what an exciting dynamic can be created in our Brook Street showroom by mixing our furniture and antiques with modern paintings” says Philip Hooper, design director for Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler. “At Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler, the decorators and designers like very much the dynamic that is created when furniture and objects from different eras are played off against one another; this is best seen when modern pictures are placed within our interiors. It is becoming more and more the excepted standard that a client will have a collection of 20th century, contemporary paintings and crafted objects and it is part of our role to curate and bring a sense of logic to a potentially random mix of things.”

 Jenna Burlingham Fine Art, founded in 2010, is located in a refurbished Grade II listed building in Kingclere, Hampshire, one-hour from London and her gallery is a favourite among discerning interior decorators and collectors. On show will be works by leading Modern British artists, including Ivon Hitchens, Patrick Heron, Roger Hilton, Elisabeth Frink, Winifred Nicholson, Mary Fedden and John Piper. “The exhibition is a wonderful chance for me to work with accomplished interior designers, and to exhibit carefully chosen Modern British and Contemporary art, drawings, sculpture and ceramics in the unrivalled setting of Brook Street” says Jenna Burlingham. “Jenna’s eye for the decorative means that her works are the ideal foil for our antiques” says Philip Hooper. “From the Gallery to the Room gives a true insight of how we consistently find ourselves decorating houses for the 21st century.”
