NEW YORK, April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- From Friday, April 25, through Sunday, April 27, 2014, The New York Botanical Garden hosts its 22nd annual garden ornament show, Antique Garden Furniture Fair: Antiques for the Garden and the Garden Room. Visitors can enjoy the Fair from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
The country's original, largest, and most important venue for authentic garden antiques features more than 30 leading exhibitors offering their finest pieces for sale, displaying centuries of classic design inspiration gathered from across the United States and Europe. Named the "Best in America" by the experts and long held as the most renowned stage for authentic garden antiques and rarities, the annual Fair, which in recent years also featured contemporary offerings, returns to its roots with a central theme of "Antiques for the Garden and the Garden Room," showcasing fascinating antique furnishings and objects, an expansive collection of ornament, decorative art, and timeless furniture for the home and garden.
Admission to the Antique Garden Furniture Fair on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday is included with the All-Garden Pass. Experts will offer presentations daily. They will also discuss trends in the appreciation and acquisition of garden ornament as well as assist buyers looking for the perfect piece to complement a garden, landscape, or interior.
Visitors to the Fair can browse and buy unique items of the highest quality and provenance, including fountains, sundials, statues, bird baths, gates, garden benches, antique wicker, urns and planters, botanical prints, and architectural ornament. Additionally, this year there will be exhibitors offering an array of interesting ways to bring the outdoors inside by creating garden rooms in your homes.
Located at the entrance to the Antique Garden Furniture Fair, a Garden Room features a Specialty Plant Sale with an extensive selection of unusual, colorful plants representing some of horticulture's finest growers. A variety of shrubs and trees, including Japanese maples, Itoh peonies and other perennials, as well as annuals and herbs will be available.
On the opening day, Friday, special talks with garden designers Page Dickey and Deborah Nevins and booksignings with leading authors will be featured. Throughout the weekend, visitors can participate in Q&As with antique and plant experts.
