The LAPADA Art & Antiques Fair in Berkeley Square, Mayfair, is the foremost international showcase for art, antiques, design and decorative arts. LAPADA (The Association of Art & Antiques Dealers) is the largest society of professional art and antiques dealers in the UK. It is a trusted resource for private collectors and the art & antiques trade in the UK and 16 other countries around the world.
Sponsored by Delancey, the 2015 edition (happening between 22nd and 27th September) has been extended by a day in response to demand following the success of last year’s event, which welcomed 20,000 collectors and visitors over five days.
100 distinguished exhibitors and experts in their field will work, including jewellery, design, furniture, carpets, tapestries, antiquities, clocks, ceramics, silver and fine art. Authenticity is assured thanks to a 70-member specialist committee pre-vetting everything on sale. With prices ranging from £500 to £500,000 and above, sought-after pieces appeal to the established collector and first-time buyers alike.
There will be some brands exhibiting at the fair for the first time. Take a look at the new brands for the LAPADA 2015 edition:
