Going Vintage – this months guide to the best furniture fairs.
Vintage is set to remain high on the style agenda this year, and although there are many vintage inspired designs on the market, for the real deal your best bet is to head down to a vintage market or fair. So for those after some unique home decor, here’s a selection of some of the best vintage furniture finds on offer.
1) Those on a budget will love the Vintage Furniture Flea, which showcases affordable vintage furniture, homewares and fabrics from the ’20s through to the ’80s. Expect to find mid century stalwarts, such as G-Plan and Ercol amongst an eclectic mix of delights from over 45 hand picked traders.
2) Spring is here and if you’re like me, and you like nothing more than bargain hunting in the sun, head down to Sunbury Antiques Market – the largest & longest running bi-monthly market in the country. Dating back to 1979, the market has over 700 stalls serving up a feast of rare gems and one-off pieces. 29 March 2O11, Kempton Park Racecourse, East Sunbury on Thames, Middlesex
