The Chicago Botanic Garden’s Antiques and Garden Fair begins today, and if you are in the area, I highly recommend checking it out. Vendors from the United States and Europe bring their best antique and contemporary garden and interior design wares, and the floral displays are spectacular. Last year, I found an amazing antique English wrought iron and marble garden table (now an end table in my living room – see below) and I discovered Molly Flavin’s incredible floral designs (see here).
Today at 11AM world renowned interior designer David Easton (he designed the wallpaper in my dressing room – see here) is giving a lecture, “A Design Journey of Past, Present and Future” and he will be signing his new book, Timeless Elegance: The Houses of David Easton. Another can’t miss lecture is David Howard’s “My Gardening Life,” taking place at 11AM on Saturday morning. He will discuss his four decades of gardening in England, most notably for the Queen and Prince Charles.
The Antiques and Garden Fair is Friday-Sunday, April 20-22nd, from 10AM-5PM each day. Located in Glencoe, Illinois.
