Lola A. Åkerström shares photos from one of Stockholm’s most popular events, Antikmässan.
While it may be cold, dark, and dreary outside, one of the most vibrantly colorful spaces can be found within the walls of Stockholmmässan when it transforms into the highly anticipated Antikmässan – the top Nordic Antiques Fair.
From Danish interior designs, vintage decor, and Rococo accents to glassware, wooden collectibles, fine porcelein, and much more, the fair brings together over 250 exhibitors and lovers of antiques and interior design enthusiasts .
Since 1978, Antikmässan has been held annually with roughly 250 stands within 4,500 square meters of exhibition space. Antikmässan is held in partnership with SKAF – the Swedish Art and Antique Dealer Association as well as the international association, Confederation Internationale des Negociants en Oeuvres d´Art (Cinoa).
Even though I’m personally not into antiques, I was still mesmerized by the beauty and designs all around me. Colors, patterns, textures – visual cues that heighten your senses as an artist and breathe new creativity into you. Antikmässan is also super special to me this year because it is the stage for my first photography exhibition in Sweden through Galleri Duerr.
Here are more photos from the antique fair.
