PAD turned 1o this year. The latest instalment of PAD London on Berkeley Square just closed its doors and left many of us, antiques and design lovers, inspired and enraptured once again with this annual rendez-vous of first-class furniture, decorative objets, jewellery, photography, tribal and modern art represented by 65-odd world-class exhibitors.

The variety and stylistic combinations of the vignettes and their ‘eclectibles’ created beautiful relationships and synergies between seemingly disparate notables that read like a roll call of 20th C museum-quality pieces all commanding incredible provenance, rarity, authenticity and integrity.

Here are A-Gent of Style’s highlights of this year’s fair, for your eyes only…

Summer in London means Masterpiece, one of the landmark events in London’s collecting calendar, which opened yesterday to the public. As a huge devotee of antiques and art fairs, A-Gent of Style was eager to witness this year’s edition, now in its 6th year, and attended the preview on Wednesday, his enthusiasm hugely enhanced in the last few weeks by the daily build-up on Instagram (where else). Rating Masterpiece as one of his highlights of the London art fair circuit, A-Gent of Style was wowed this year once again by the sheer brilliance and diversity of the elegantly curated vignettes showcasing objets of the highest calibre

Masterpiece London, a true international, cross-collecting fair for art, brings together more than 150 leading exhibitors, old friends and newcomers (A-Gent of Style made once again some great discoveries, and was also delighted to see a few of his most cherished antiques dealers were exhibiting for the first time), from around the world to showcase a superb selection of museum-quality art, antiques, jewellery, furniture and design. The fair attracts avid collectors, connoisseurs and enthusiasts across a wide range of collecting categories and has established itself as notable highlight of the annual art fair calendar. Set in the magnificent South Grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea, Masterpiece takes place over seven days until July 1.

The mastermind of this masterpiece, Nazy Vassegh, the delightful and brilliant Chief Executive of Masterpiece says, “The eight days when Masterpiece takes place is the epicenter of the art season in London. After just five years Masterpiece is now firmly regarded as both a leading international art fair and a welcome addition to the summer in London. We are particularly delighted by the exhibitors and partners that will join us for the 2015 edition.”

As in previous years, the range of disciplines is vast, providing something of interest for every visitor. Each item is selected and individually vetted by a committee of independent experts and specialists before the fair begins, which guarantees quality and authenticity is of the highest order alongside fabulous bars and dining such as Scott’s, The Ivy and Le Caprice.

 In no particular order of preference (so don’t get jealous, fellas), A-Gent of Style presents today snapshots he took on Wednesday morning of some of the works that dazzled him. Visitors will no doubt relish the chance to acquire such rare pieces or simply enjoy temptation on a grand scale.

At 9 a.m yesterday, 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 24 March at the Duke of York Square, off Sloane Square, London SW3, this year’s fair, the 23rd annual edition, 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 from 16th century works of art to contemporary furniture is the place for collectors and also first-time buyers 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.


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.
