During the week of the LAPADA Fair, Berkeley Square will be transformed into a hub of art and antiques showcasing over 100 dealers, bursting with treasures, both traditional and contemporary, for the discerning eye.

Of the 11 exhibitions, four take place in northern France, six on our south coast and, enchantingly, one in between: A Floating Garden is an installation of photographs of flowers – real and artificial – on a ferry. Meanwhile Gertrude Jekyll and Edwin Lutyens – names not normally associated with France – get a look in at Bois de Moutiers, the estate they worked on together in 1898. The…
