Update 24 June 2013: The Vienna Fair 2013 has been postponed
A new antique rug fair entitled ‘Vienna Antique Rug & Textile Fair 2013’ is under planning and a 4-days fair will hopefully take place in Vienna in the fall 2013.
The organizers intention with this fair is to feature international dealers offering authentic, antique weavings, and an academic program during the fair is also under planning.
Hotel am Brillantengrund has been mentioned as a possible venue. This hotel is located in the middle of Vienna’s 7th District, next to Mariahilferstrasse and between Museums-quartier and the Westbahnhof.
The organizers of this buying and trading antique rug and textile fair include Kolya von Somogyi, Vianna, and Sarah Haberkern, Stuttgart.
“We are still in the planning stages, working on many fronts. As soon as we have enough details we will send out an official announcement” said Kolya von Somogyi to Jozan Magazine.
An antique rug fair in the fall 2013 would be another good reason to visit Austria’s capital Vienna. The old city itself is very beautiful and among other attractions should be mentioned Vienna’s famous carpet collection at the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts (MAK).
