The London Antique Rug and Textile Art Fair returns to The Showroom on Penfold Street for the fifth year 16 – 19 April 2015.

Its continuing admirable objective is ‘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.’

New exhibitors Kennedy Carpets from London and Hagop Manoyan from New York will join regular exhibitors, including James Cohen, Joss Graham, Andy Lloyd, Aaron Nejad and Owen Parry. HALI will be in attendance, as will Hamburg based specialist publication, Carpet Collector.

If you are unable to be in central London this April, all is not lost! There is still an opportunity to view highlights from the Fair via ‘LARTA online’. When the doors open on 16 April, high resolution images of the best items from every dealer will go on virtual display.
