One to put in the diary! STEVENS FURNITURE RESTORATION will be visiting Bada which starts from 14th -20th March 2018. The Bada (The British Antique Dealers’ Association) exhibition is held in London. An event annually visited by Stevens Furniture Restoration. This Fair is important for furniture enthusiasts and professionals involved in the trade and is particularly popular with those who appreciate the value of fine antique furniture and want to be kept up-to-date on what trends are emerging at the top end of the antique furniture world and also helps furniture restorers like ourselves. Stevens Furniture Restoration keep a keen look-out for events in the sector so that we can inform our client base and meet with other furniture restoration/dealer professionals.
WHEN IS THE BADA FAIR IN LONDON?
The twentieth edition of the Bada Fair – Fine Art, Design & Antiques was held in the pavilions of Duke of York Square in London, from 14 to 20 March 2018. Stevens Furniture Restoration announces this traditional antiques event not to be missed, promoted by the British Antique Dealers’ Association. An interesting appointment involving around 100 “professionals in the sector” i.e. experts in antique furniture restoration and furniture repair. Those taking part stand out for their internationally recognised experience, professionalism and expertise.
The event includes other collateral attractions for antiques enthusiasts, such as the silver, ceramics and bronze exhibition from the Schrodere collection and the exhibition of military medals and decorations from the collections of Lord Ashcroft. Jonathan Cooper returned to the Bada Fair 2018 with a collective exhibition of exceptional British and international artists, including an exhibition of bronze sculptures by Tanya Brett.
ANTIQUES AND SPRINGTIME: BADA IS THE ANNUAL APPOINTMENT WITH FURNITURE IN LONDON
For more than 20 years the Bada Fair in London has been recognised as the major springtime event in the sector of antique furniture and furniture restoration. But Bada is also an important moment dedicated to the fine arts, design, exhibitions of rare objects and, naturally, a chance for the 100 participants selected from the most prestigious British antique dealers and furniture restorers to show off their wares. The quality and authenticity of each article on sale at the fair was carefully monitored by the control Committee in order to maintain the high standards of the Association.
Collectors, furniture and interior design enthusiasts and furniture repair professionals meet every year at the Bada Fair to keep up-to-date about what’s new internationally and to enjoy so many unique opportunities to purchase exceptional items of traditional and modern art.

THE BADA FAIR – FINE ART, DESIGN & ANTIQUES: THE EVENT TO TAKE ANTIQUES INTO THE FUTURE
One of the most important aims of the association which organises this event is to preserve the best antiques for future generations, so that a culture of the art of furniture restoration of antiques is not lost. For this reason the Bada’s Cultural and Educational Trust promotes restoration courses at the London West Dean College, also supported by the Bada Friends. This organisation every year proposes numerous courses, masterclasses and private visits to collections of object and furniture usually closed to the public. Also, the Bada Friends benefit from free entrance to the main antique fairs in England.
