PAD 2015: first preview this afternoon
As ever, the set up for PAD was a delight. This may be accounted for by our pleasure in this event; by the friendly atmosphere created by the organisers and exhibitors alike; by the range of fascinating materials brought by our colleagues, and perhaps by the fact that the fair is conveniently located a hundred metres from Mount Street.
With such proximity to our apartment, we are afforded the luxury of tweaking the display without troubling Aston Spinks to move from their coveted parking bay in the chaos that is Berkeley Square, triple-parked within an European Union of trucks.
This year, the stand is built around the recently acquired Latto Suite, designed and manufactured by Peter Waals. Details of this furniture are given in our recent Newsletter. If you did not receive this and would like further details, do please ask. And if you would like to receive our periodic Newsletter in the future, you can sign up by following this link:
Other exhibits, many of which are examples of the Arts & Crafts Movement, include chairs by C.F.A. Voysey; a writing table by Gordon Russell; a rocking chair by Gustav Stickley; a clock and some lamps by W.A.S. Benson; shelves by Ernest Gimson, and a glass vase by George Walton. We also have a selection of French ceramics by Pierre-Adrien Dalpayrat and Auguste Delaherche.
PAD opens to the public at 11 am on Wednesday and runs through until 6 pm on Sunday. We look forward to welcoming you to our stand, A.16.
