Press Release

A VISUAL BANQUET AT THE 
NATIONAL ANTIQUES & DECORATIVE ARTS FAIRE
3 – 5TH JUNE 2015
SANDTON CONVENTION CENTRE

 

For sixteen years the National Antiques & Decorative Arts Faire has set the trend in collecting... and others have followed.  When it comes to breaking new ground the NAADA Faire delivers – showcasing everything from classical antiques to specialist dealers; from mantiques to ‘back to the future’ collectables; from vintage to retro – in a venue that accommodates specialist pavilions, vintage and classic car platforms, a stylish refreshment area and an opening night for the who’s who of collecting.
Collecting is a unique human phenomenon often referred to as an ‘investment addiction’ and which is fast becoming a global phenomenon.  Once bitten by the collecting bug, a person becomes a life-long collector, captivated by their particular field of collecting, continually researching, adding to and building their collection.  The beauty of collecting lies in the fact that one can start collecting on a moderate scale, buying what one can afford, but inevitably moving on to investing in even rarer and more valuable pieces. 
The proliferation of reality programmes, such as the British Antiques Roadshow and Cash in the Attic, focus on traditional antiques. The American shows, such as American Pickers and Pawn Stars, with its focus on more recent collectables from the 50’s through to the ‘70’s, has opened up collecting to younger generations.
Celebrating its 16th successful year as the biggest and most dynamic collecting exhibition, visitors to the annual National Antiques & Decorative Arts Faire, which takes place from the 3 – 5th June 2016 at the Sandton Convention Centre, are seduced by the variety of antiques, collectables, art, classic cars and decorative arts. It’s the place to find that statement piece that will be the talking point of your home, that rare piece to add to your collection or just something special that catches your eye.
The profile of visitor includes people who are avid antique and art collectors or those who wish to start collecting as an investment.  With the broadening of the range of collectables to include more modern wares, the Faire also attract visitors who are interested in buying specific pieces for decorating purposes, as well as attracting the younger collector. Stephen Falcke, decorator to the stars and to royalty, whose talent in mixing classic styles with contemporary touches, takes pride of place with his decor exhibit that enthrals and inspires visitors.
One of the must-attend functions on the Johannesburg social and investment calendar is the Gala Cocktail Opening Night of the National Antiques Faire which attracts over 500 of the who’s who of the collecting world, top business people, the elite and celebrities who gather to mingle and be the first to reserve the best pieces in antiques, artworks and collectables.
The National Antiques & Decorative Arts Faire, which takes place at the Sandton Convention Centre each July offers everything you could wish for under one roof – beautifully styled and exquisitely presented; a visual banquet of decor settings – from dining areas featuring 24-seater antique mahogany tables laden with collectable porcelain dinner sets and valuable silver dining accessories to seating areas complete with master art, bookshelves filled with collectable books and ornaments that will intrigue and delight collectors.

 

Juxtaposed to the opulence of 100-year old and older antiques that grace many a wealthy home are the young, up-and-coming collectors who look to find tomorrow’s antiques, today. It might be an Eames chair, a Warhol cupboard or a Norman Catherine sculpture. Others prefer the quirky seventies look, prefer the French provencal look or go gaga over a 50’s Coca Cola fridge or a 70’s classic car.

 

A dedicated art pavilion for the art aficionados who want to experience art both in a gallery setting and as part of exquisite decor settings. With so many antique dealers picking up significant South African Masters art pieces in their day-to-day dealings with collectors, the art section of the NAADA Faire is dedicated to featuring not only old SA masters but contemporary master art as well as museum art collections.
The NAADA Faire once again welcomes the SA Mint whose Johannesburg Coin Fair takes centre stage at the Faire and puts the focus on collecting rare numismatics, bank notes and Kruger Rands and through their select and experienced dealers
International exhibitors add a touch of the exotic to the National Antiques Faire. American ceramics dealer Ed Pascoe of Pascoe Ceramics puts the focus on the 200th anniversary of the prestigious English house of Royal Doulton with some rare and valuable pieces on show. Dutch antiques dealer Ricus Dullaert of Kunsthandel H.W.C. Dullaert showcases never-been-seen before European and Chinese antiques and also specialises in finding antique pieces – whether in bibles, clocks or furniture – that have strong ties to the Dutch/South African Heritage.
Vintage and classic cars have always been platformed at the National Antiques Faire – from vintage cars from the early 1900’s to classic 1950’s and ‘70’s collectable cars.
