It is a passion for works of art and a pioneering spirit that has kept Blairman’s at the forefront of the Art Market for over a hundred years. Established in Llandudno in 1884, and now located at 15 Queen Anne’s Gate in the heart of Westminster, the firm is today directed by Martin and Patricia Levy, representing the fourth generation of this family-run business. In the early 1920s, Martin Levy’s grandfather, Philip Blairman, established a reputation as a dealer in 18th & 19th century English and French furniture, with a particular interest in the English Regency period, with which the firm remains firmly associated. Across the years, tastes and interests have evolved, and today the focus is on furniture (often architecturally-inspired) and works of art of the 19th and 20th centuries. The familiar marquee with its bold PAD logo may not have been seen in Berkeley Square this year, but we hope you will step across St James’s Park to our rooms at Queen Anne’s Gate where we look forward to showing you furniture by Arts & Crafts designers such as C.F.A. Voysey, Philip Webb and Gordon Russell, metalwork by W.A.S. Benson, and ceramics by designers such as Christopher Dresser from this side of the Channel and Pierre-Adrien Dalpayrat from France.
