The garden as gallery

Unique, unusual furniture and deco for inside the home – and out – at the 31st Bath Decorative Antiques Fair coming to Bath (natch), in March. And we've free tickets for you all!

With the theme of ‘garden as gallery’ (my garden’s channelling Jackson Pollock at the mo, how about yours?), you can expect inspiration for the home, both inside and out, at the Bath Decorative Antiques Fair 2020 at the Bath Pavilion, from Fri 6 – Sun 8 March.

So as well as the huge range of eclectic furniture, lighting, home wares, artworks, jewellery, accessories and more for the home and for you (the jewellery is fabulous), you’ll find vintage garden furniture, some unusual statuary, urns and planters that can double as wine coolers – practical as well as beautiful – from around 45 of the UK’s top dealers. Want to take a peep?


Park yourselves here.  You won’t feel distressed though this vintage bench is, very prettily.

Or here, close to the wire. You’ll need to supply your own cushion.

Other people might have garden gnomes but cool dudes have a pair of life-size stone Afghans guarding the grounds.

You’ll need some refreshment out there. Keep your wine in here…
