I was able to attend the LAPADA Art & Antiques Fair with TimeOut last week. It was literally the definition of beauty and extravagance. Located in the beautiful Berkeley Sq in the heart of Mayfair, trees were cleverly disguised in and around the various stands. We saw everything from art, sculptures, vintage chess sets, furniture, jewellery, ornaments and hand-crafted one-off pieces. Although the prize-tags were slightly high for my budgets it was fascinating and amazing to see so much rare art and antiquities on display in the same room.

Quite frankly, the only reason I went to the fair, was because I won the Time Out Card invitations. And I am so glad I did. The stuff in there is mesmerising. I saw countless Picassos and Chagals, a few Cocteaus and Matisses, a mahogany letter-box that belonged to Napoleon's sister, antique Tiffany and Lalique, etc., etc. I fell in love with a green leather art deco couch and armchairs set that would have made Zelda Fitzgerald proud. It's the real deal. And you can get close and personal with all those things (just pretend you really are considering buying that £ 35,000 Greek bust). And the sellers get slightly tipsy and very friendly by the end of the day. And there's an outpost of Mr Fogg's bar serving a decently priced version of their oh-so-expensive Bruton Lane tipple. And the tent is beautifully built around the ancient plane trees of Berkely Square (to make all the eco-freaks happy). And you can pick up a copy of Harper's BAZAAR when you exit. For God's sake, go! You only have 2 more days to go!
