The theme for the entrance exhibition to this fair is what to furnish your ski chalet or hunting lodge with and as always there is a tempting wide-ranging choice throughout the fair whatever your budget whether it be a £15 vintage French wine glass or a £50,000 Modern British painting.. It seems that country accessories and folk art are enjoying a revival at present and were among items that appealed to Oprah Winfrey and her decorator Rose Tarlow when they visited the Autumn edition of the Fair.
