Marco Forgione, BADA CEO, comments: “As we finalise preparations for our 24th BADA Fair we look forward to welcoming 100 leading dealers, including 11 new exhibitors, and over 18,000 visitors from around the world. BADA Fair is a brilliant opportunity for a wide range of antique buyers, collectors and interior designers to draw on the expertise of our members and select from a wide range of pieces of outstanding quality.”

The fine art at the BADA Fair will range from Turner to Banksy, with further works including unseen textiles by Henry Moore from the Ascher collection, as well as Picasso ceramics and Warhol drawings. There will be signature pieces of jewellery on offer by designers including Tiffany, Boucheron and Van Cleef & Arpels. The furniture will incorporate items by renowned cabinetmakers of the eighteenth century such as John Linnell and Gillows of Lancaster, to contemporary items by celebrated designer Danny Lane. Other pieces represented include clocks, decorative arts, glassware, ceramics, carpets and silver.

Taking place in a purpose-built pavilion at Duke of York Square, just outside the Saatchi Gallery, the BADA Fair has 5,000m2 of floor space and features a new frontage specifically designed for 2016.
