Now in its fourth 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 3rd to 6th April 2014. Opening night, April 3rd, 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 2014 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.

All our regular exhibitors will be returning for LARTA 2014. We are also delighted that both Gallery Nomad from Berkhamsted and Galerie Arabesque from Stuttgart will be returning. The broad ranges of specialisation of our dealers ensures that LARTA 2014 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 2014 will be fun, cool, and inspiring.

This year, for the first time, LARTA will be on view ONLINE as well as at the Showroom. On Thursday April 3rd 3014 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. It will be your virtual visit to LARTA 2014!
