The AADLA’s Fine Art & Antiques Show has become a must-shop destination for interior designers who are sourcing decorative and fine art for their clients. Says Ellie Cullman of the preeminent Cullman & Kravis, “This show is an excellent resource for finding reasonably priced quality items. My team and I always look forward to the exciting discoveries this show provides.”
“With the dearth of antique shops these days, we rely on shows like the Fine Art & Antique Show, adds Alex Papachristidis of his eponymous firm. “It’s small, chic, easy to get to, manageable and, most important, there are so many fantastic things to be found.” Last year, Papachristidis scored two English 18th century sunburst mirrors from Clinton Howell. “The mirrors are going over a fantastic console and commode in my clients home in Europe.”
About the AADLA
Founded in 1926, The Art and Antique Dealers League of America, Inc., now with 86 members, is the oldest and principal antiques and fine arts organization in America. The mission of the league is to bring the members of the art and antiques trade closer together and to promote a greater understanding among themselves and with the public, and generally to devote itself to the best interests of dealers and collectors of antiques and works of art.
The participating dealers are leaders in their respective fields and have been in the business for many years. They’ve seen collecting trends come and go and aren’t rattled by the whims in taste. With its boutique-style fair, collectors—veteran or neophyte— can purchase a broad spectrum of beautiful objects at far more approachable prices.”
