Dear Diva Readers,

You’ve done TEFAF and PAN Amsterdam, you live for going to London’s Olympia Art & Antiques Fair and the Biennale des Antiques is a Parisian rite of passage… but have you done The Avenue’s Antiques & Art at The Armory?

You might as well flip open your online agenda and type a great big “Save The Date” for there is no place else you’d rather be this Sept 30 – Oct 3.

This crème de la crème event, produced by Avenue Magazine, is held at The Park Avenue Armory (643 Park Avenue, New York, NY) and gathers over 50 of the world’s most renowned antique dealers in one posh locale! Art & Antique inventory on hand will be endless, focusing on French, English, Italian, Swedish and Continental furniture from the 17th century through mid century modern.

Rumor has it their collection of fine silver includes Early American, English, Tiffany and Jensen and their Russian antiquities and art are TO DIE for! I for one am a huge fan of clocks and barometers and objets de vertu and simply can’t wait to discover what contemporary art and prints they have on hand! But don’t take my word on it – see what a host of America’s finest interior designers – such as Miles Redd and Mario Buatta – have to say about it! Watch the Highlights from Last Year’s Fair!

Happy shopping,

The Antiques Diva™
