NOVEMBER | PAGE 65 | 2014 Houston Antiques + Art + Design Show FAREWELL HADA, HELLO A Stylish Kickoff at Mrs. PK & Oz; the Reborn Splendors of a Storied Show EVERYTHING OLD IS NEW AGAIN: A ROMP THROUGH HAADS One week later, the main event unfurled at George R. Brown Convention Center as the 50-year-old HADA Show metamorphosed into Houston Antiques + Art + Design Show. Present were Houston purveyors of antiquarian and modernism treasures: Carl Moore Antiques, Antiques of River Oaks, David Lackey Antiques and Art, Lewis & Maese Auction Co., Dianne Joseph's Atelier 1505, Majolica LLC, Mrs. PK & Oz, Lynn Goode Vintage, Past Era Antique Jewelry, Arader Galleries and William Reaves Fine Art. Miss Hogg and the Mastersons, who never missed a HADA show, would have found much to love at the revamped show, which was freshened up by Dolphin Promotions, creators of such acclaimed shows as Palm Springs Modernism and LA Modernism. Partnering with 1stdibs, The Magazine Antiques and PaperCity, HAADS opened the window onto the 20th century, pairing stately Georgian highboys and over-the-top Victorian majolica with the clean-lined aesthetic and avant-garde stance of modernism booths such as Mrs. PK & Oz and Lynn Goode Vintage. For lovers of estate jewels, Past Era Antique Jewelry obliged. We indulged our obsession with old, rare maps and Audubons at Arader Galleries, after making a stop at David Lackey's booth for paintings and porcelains that dated to the early 19th century and chatting up Geoffrey Westergaard of Carl Moore, who held court amid Staffordshire and an impressive carved Continental table. Also drawing a crowd were book signings at William Reaves Fine Art, which showcased mid-century Texas artists, featuring authors Katie Robinson Edwards and Sally Reynolds signing their respective volumes, Midcentury Modern Art in Texas and Houston Reflections: Art in the City, 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Other compelling offerings included a grand gilt-silver French monstrance, circa 1860, at Butler & Butler of Sarasota, Florida; first-edition volumes, circa the 1920s, at Hayden & Fandetta, New York; late- 19th-century majolica roosters, signed Jerome Messier (perfect for a Roundtop cottage) at Majolica LLC of Paris and Houston; substantial silver at Michael Weaver Sterling Silver of Atlanta; highly carved 19th-century frames at Vandeuren Galleries of West Hollywood; and art-glass dazzlers at Lotton Art Glass, traveling from Crete, Illinois. Best news of all: You won't have to wait until next fall for HAADS. The Houston Antiques + Art + Design Show returns to the George R. Brown March 27 through 29, 2015. MAKE MINE MODERN PARTY QUERY: THE MOST INSPIRING ROOM ANYWHERE? DAVID MILSTEAD: "The state capitol of Texas rotunda. All that light and color!" DAVID LACKEY: "At the Sir John Soane Museum in London, the gallery with the Neoclassical plaster casts." ALISON MANDEVILLE: "My grandparents' living room in upstate New York, built and designed by my grandfather after hearing Frank Lloyd Wright lecture at Cornell. And inspired by Wright's principals." PATTI KAGAN: "The living room in the Milan Bauhaus home that appears in Tilda Swinton's film, I Am Love. It has a wraparound terrarium in the walls. There's an book about that house." NANCY PERRIER: "My own little sunroom, which is very Dorothy Draper."

Mrs. PK & Oz — a compelling stop for furnishings and design classics from the halcyon era of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s — hosted the first kickoff bash for the reborn Houston Antiques + Art + Design Show. The show's new owner, Rosemary Krieger, in from Chicago, chatted with exhibitors, collectors and devotees of design, describing what new ownership of the venerable HADA show will mean. Presiding as gracious hosts were the design store's eponymous purveyors: Patti Kagan, aka Mrs. PK, and Troy Osborne, as in Oz. Soaking in the vibe amongst Vladimir Kagan and Harvey Probber sofas: Gretchen and Andrew McFarland; Judge Vanessa Gilmore; Brooke and Greg Candelaria; Houston Design Center's Denzil Hollingsworth with wife Elise and son Bryce; Julia and Jay Hellums; Allamar Young with best gal Kaci Newman; Dianne Maxey; Laura Medard; Vesna Jolic in dialogue with Anthony Roger; doc Parissa Mohajer; Nancy Perrier; and a distinguished lineup of HAADS dealers including Josie and Fred Nevill of Antiques of River Oaks, David Lackey, David Milstead with Lynn Goode Vintage, and Dianne and Bob Josephs of Atelier 1505.
