The Winter Fine Art and Antiques Fair, Olympia is a nominee for the Luxist Awards in the best antiques resource category.
First launched in 1991, the Winter Fine Art and Antiques Fair has been heralded as the epitome of fine art and antiques events in the UK and has become an annual mark on many a social calendar for those of high esteem and exquisite taste. Past years have seen visitors such as Bono, Claudia Schiffer, and Victoria Rothschild. The fair takes place in the impressive Olympia exhibition hall which was built in 1892 and boasts a grand atmosphere and 3 halls featuring elegant and airy spaces and dome-like ceilings, along with plenty of natural light.
Items are offered up at the fair by over 150 exhibitors and come from all over the world, including wall art, textiles, chandeliers and lighting, floor coverings, and musical instruments to name just a few of the categories. The fair is supported by two of the most prestigious trade associations (BADA and LAPADA) and all items go through a rigorous vetting process run by a team of 150 experts divided into 33 committees. Shoppers can buy with confidence.
The Winter Fine Art and Antiques Fair, Olympia runs from November 19-22, 2009 and if you can't make it next month (or can make it but can't wait to see more) be sure to mark your calendar also for the Summer Fine Art and Antiques Fair to be held in summer 2010 from June 4-13.
