London South West, UK - The Autumn Decorative Fair in Battersea opened on Tuesday. Well known for exhibitors showcasing classic and unusual statement pieces, the fair is a go to event for designers and celebrities.
The stand of Antiques By Design, a regular exhibitor attracting customers who like the wow factor, shows reclaimed, salvaged and antique pieces used to create innovative mirrors, furniture and lighting.
Guy Chevenix-Trench, the man behind these unique and quirky designs has the perfect combination of a creative imagination with a good knowledge of practical craftsmanship tempered by years underwater repairing North Sea oil rigs. The result is upcycled beauties made to last. This opportunity to see his latest stock at the Fair lasts until 2nd October.
Guy told us, "The fair has been really good with a lot of yacht-related items being sold. I had a very old Zulu class Scottish fishing vessel rudder that was bought by a vetter before the fair had even started."
Antiques By Design is a Salvo Code dealer and a regular exhibitor at the Salvo Fair. Another Salvo Code dealer exhibiting at Battersea is Nicholas Gifford-Mead selling antique chimneypieces, fire furniture, sculpture and garden ornament. Other regular Salvo Fair exhibitors at Battersea include Gary Wallis, Nikki Page, Antique French Chair & Sofa, No. 1 Lewes and La Place Antiques. Since this year's expansion into the mezzanine there are now 150 exhibitors.
Scandi Days and Nordic Nights is the foyer display for the Autumn Fair where Mid-century Scandinavian designs blend elegantly with more traditional folk.
