The Art & Antiques Fair Olympia is the capital’s most established and respected vetted art and antiques fair. It will be running from Thursday 18 until Sunday 28 June with an exclusive Private Preview taking place on Wednesday 17 June, where 130 leading British and international art galleries and antique dealers will be exhibiting. There will be a diverse range of furniture, art, design, sculpture, decorative objects, clocks, silver alongside jewellery, textiles, glass and ceramics – offering an enormous amount of choice for those seeking transformational, elegant and statement pieces.
Mary Claire Boyd, Fair Director of The House & Garden Festival, says: “The House & Garden Festival is a must-attend event for anyone looking for inspiration and expert advice for their house, and to find original, stylish pieces. The Festival plays host to a plethora of experts who will be creating stunning ‘Decorated Spaces’ while others will be sharing their wealth of experience through informative talks and interactive workshops, so visitors can glean style and design ideas directly from the professionals. This is the perfect event for those looking to learn, update their house, find that statement piece or shop for chic summer accessories for themselves.”
The Experts Theatre and interactive Summer Living Workshops will have a fantastic line-up of interiors, architectural and garden experts sharing their advice, including the editorial team of House & Garden. Here you can learn new techniques, as well as create summer lifestyle pieces that you can take home. From Champagne tasting to flower arranging, garden design to food sampling – visitors will leave with a wealth of ideas and advice learnt from the very best in the industry.
You can participate in free one-to-one advice consultations with the professionals while you’re there, so you can get to grips and understand the important next steps for your project. Leading experts from the British Institute of Interior Design (BIID), accredited architects from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and garden experts will be on hand. Advice consultations must be booked in advance via www.houseandgardenfestival.com.
To help inspire you further, leading interior designers selected by House & Garden will create their very own ‘Decorated Spaces’ where they will each design different areas of a house giving visitors the opportunity to have an insight into how these interior designers work. These aspirational spaces will be designed with a variety of budgets and tastes in mind.
Of course, there will be enticing food on offer at the Festival restaurant while visitors are urged to enjoy a glass of champagne at one of the many stylish Louis Roederer Champagne Bars open all week. Visitors can book their table in advance.
