For the 12th time PAD London Art Fair returns to Mayfair, in Berkeley Square in 2018 to bring together exceptional works of modern art, design, decorative arts, photography, jewellery and tribal art. Set in the vibrant heart of Mayfair, PAD is London’s leading fair for 20th Century art, design and decorative arts.

Prominent international galleries from major cities across North America and Asia come together to offer an exceptional panorama of the most coveted and iconic works available on the market today, for the occasion, making it a fantastic place to discover pieces of museum quality. The fair, which takes place at the same time as Frieze and Frieze Masters, helps to attract the world’s most influential art buyers to London each October.


  • the ‘Best 20th Century Design’ Piece – CARPENTERS WORKSHOP GALLERY, London, San Francisco, Paris
  • the ‘Best Contemporary Design’ Piece, along with the ‘Best Stand’- GALERIE NEGROPONTES, PARIS Etienne Moyat, wood pannel, Arabesque 2017

BUT MY PERSONAL AWARD goes to….The absolute GEM of this year fair – the stand by Siegelson, who is recognized by museum curators, magazine editors, and jewellery houses as a leading source of authority on rare jewellery, gemstones, and objects of art. It was such an honour to welcome Gadi Behar and Lee Siegelson, a third-generation gem and jewellery dealer, who has a discerning eye for acquiring unique and important creations in London this year.

Here is my pick of the contemporary pieces not to be missed of limited-edition contemporary design from the show.
