THE LONDON ANTIQUE RUG AND TEXTILE ART FAIR
16th - 19th April 2015
Now in its fifth year, we are delighted to announce that the London Antique Rug and Textile Art Fair (LARTA) will once again take place at The Showroom, Penfold St, London NW8 from 16th - 19th April 2015. Opening night, April 16th, is our Collectors' Preview (invitation only).
Our objective remains to present rare and beautiful antique rugs, carpets and textiles to discerning collectors, decorators and a wider general audience interested in the woven arts and design. Visitors to LARTA 2015 will have the opportunity to source items originating from Anatolia, the Caucasus, Persia, Central Asia, India and China, as well as from Europe and Africa, and from all periods up to the early 20th century.
This year, our exhibitor list will be stronger than ever. As well as our regular exhibitors, we are delighted to announce two exciting new exhibitors. First, Kennedy Carpets from London is one of the oldest and most important rug dealerships in London with an international reputation for excellence. Second, Hagop Manoyan from New York who is one of the best and most active specialist collectible rug dealers in America. The broad ranges of specialisation of our dealers ensures that LARTA 2015 will once again be a truly high quality and eclectic event. Expect to see rare collectors' items alongside beautiful decorative items in a bazaar-like atmosphere.
We are delighted to be able to once again present LARTA at The Showroom. Conveniently located a few minutes from Marble Arch close to Edgware Road, in central London, this contemporary exhibition space provides a rare opportunity to view inspiring rugs and textile art in relaxed surroundings. LARTA 2015 will be fun, cool, and inspiring.
Following the success of LARTA Online in 2014, once again LARTA will be on view ONLINE as well as at the Showroom. On Thursday April 16th 2015 at 6pm LARTA Online will go live and will be on view from this website. All the best items exhibited by every dealer will be on view, with high resolution images, details and captions together with direct contact details to each exhibitor.
