Off the Wall - Adrian Sassoon, Grandy Art, Anthony Fell Antiques and Julian Chichester
Adrian Sassoon www.adriansassoon.com
Adrian Sassoon's business has long been a byword for the highest quality antique French porcelain. Now he can be relied upon to bring the same discernment to the selection of contemporary ceramics and sculpture. Sassoon pieces always stand up to good architecture and hold their own with a range of other dates and styles. Edward has used two pieces by Junko Mori and hung them in a group as if they are floating on the wind like gently released seeds. Her work has a beautiful organic quality to it, rare in its ability to really rival the natural form.
Grandy Art www.grandyart.com
Georgie Grandy specialises in emerging artists; they are always well trained and have a good sense of the fun and the decorative! She exhibits at the Affordable Art Fair and curates her own show in the Cotswolds every year. Edward chose Emily Crookshank's work for its elemental intensity. A seemingly simple assemblage of etched forms results in images that challenge our perception of planes and encourage a tactile sense of the quality of printed ink. They juxtapose well with antique furniture and set up an almost audible dialogue.
Anthony Fell Antiques www.anthonyfell.com
Anthony Fell is a dealer with a finely tuned eye and a rare ability to find pieces that delight because they combine mastery in craftsmanship with the fascination of good provenance. "I buy these Aubusson tapestries with fancy birds and fanciful towers as great value wall covering! I have also used them for practicality where acoustic dampening was needed and recently in a billiard room where they could not come to much harm from stray billiard balls!"
Julian Chichester www.julianchichester.com
If you want anything mirrored that is stylish and on trend but incredibly well designed, then look no further than Julian Chichester. Year after year he continues to reinvigorate his fantastic collection. "This is furniture with a personality. Must-have classics mix with new designs to look amazing in any contemporary space and equally as covetous alongside traditional pieces. It’s time to bring style to life". Julian Chichester
