London Fair takes inspiration from Old Hollywood
Dec 27, 2012

Over 140 exhibitors will join together for the winter edition of the Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair in Battersea Park, London from Jan. 22-27.
This year’s old Hollywood glamour theme will be represented by glittering waterfall chandeliers, mirrored furniture, curvaceous sofas upholstered in velvets and ‘hostess’ chairs in satin button-back upholstery—all set against an Art Deco backdrop of black, white and silver.

Birds-eye maple, shagreen, leather, lacquer and parchment will highlight the elegant furnishings. The display will reference the glamorous black and white films of Fred & Ginger, the lavish interiors of S.S. Normandie and the famous Hollywood interiors of William (Billy) Haines, which he created for the likes of Carol Lombard and Joan Crawford.
