Saddened not to be in Maastricht for the TEFAF this year, A-Gent of Style found great solace and comfort by attending the leading UK fair for traditional British antiques and fine art yesterday. At 9 a.m precisely, A-Gent of Style arrived at the doors of the BADA Antiques and Fine Art Fair to attend the press preview before it opened to the public at 11 a.m. Returning to its favourite location until 25 March at the Duke of York Square, off Sloane Square, London SW3, this year’s fair did not disappoint. On the contrary, it seemed like it surpassed itself once again.

Housed in a purpose-built pavilion, the range of objects for sale ranging from various disciplines such as art, furniture and paintings to clocks, ceramics, silver, jewellery, rugs and much more is the place to buy antiques and fine art from Britain’s most renowned experts. Everything for sale is vetted for quality and authenticity and all exhibitors are members of the Association. The BADA fair is famed for its elegant design and spacious layout, providing a stunning setting for the beautiful works for sale for everyone from the first time buyer to the seasoned collector, with prices ranging from £100 to six figure sums.

BADA teamed up with the Neuroblastoma Society to raise money for research and hosted a glitzy Charity Gala Reception last night at the Cellini restaurant within the BADA fair.

Here are A-Gent of Style‘s highlights, favourite picks and some of the stunning vignettes that caught his attention and dazzled him as he browsed the fair for a couple of hours in the blissfully quiet and peaceful environment before the impressive queue of antiques admirers and collectors were let in.

‘A LONDONER IN PARIS’: MAISON & OBJET PARIS JANUARY 2014



 

MaisonObjet20141-519x346


Following on from his intoxicating adventures in Paris a fortnight ago which started with Paris Déco Off, A-Gent of Style would like to share with you his first MAISON&OBJET. Some of you might think it is sacrilegious to hear that
 A-Gent had never been before to this arguably biggest trade fair in the design world. But in A-Gent of Style‘s defence, firstly the opportunity to visit the fair had never risen and secondly the opinions about it were very mixed, dare I say it, almost off-putting essentially because of the sheer size and amplitude of it all (two to three days are apparently necessary to cover the whole fair). So with some preconceptions, A-Gent went out to Villepinte on the Sunday, forty minutes north of Paris from Les Jardins du Luxembourg, to see and experiment for himself what the fuss and attraction were all about – last year, just under 80,000 visitors were reported to have attended the fair over the five days MAISON&OBJET was on.

MAISON&OBJET Paris is a complete showcase for all aspects of design, decoration and the art of living, highlighting current and future trends, which mobilises and brings together the interior design sector under one roof from all over the world. Held in September and January each year in Paris and also recently in Asia and the Americas, retail buyers, influencers, European and global export companies gather at Paris Nord Villepinte to see the latest design developments, find out about emerging trends and plan the next step for their business. A-Gent of Style had decided to concentrate for the first time to Les Editeurs, regrouped under Hall 7 (there are eight halls together) created for fans of Haute creation and unique and exclusive pieces from the best of the decorative world in a profusion of beautiful brands. Additionally, Scènes d’Intérieur brought together for the first time the talents of extraordinary creators, at the crossroads of craft, art and design.

A-Gent of Style was ultimately very pleasantly surprised by what he saw and some of the wonderful discoveries he made; he even made it to Hall 8! And all under four hours! All very much worth the visit and ploughing your way through the crowds.

Here is his story in pictures:
