TEFAF Maastricht and March go hand in hand, until COVID came into play. For the first time in countless years, the fair was held in June. In addition, the exhibition had to be shorter, 7 instead of 11 days, due to the busy international summer agenda.
What is TEFAF
TEFAF Maastricht is widely regarded as the world’s leading fair for fine art, antiques and design. About half of the offer at the fair consists of traditional categories such as paintings by the Old Masters, antiques and objects from classical antiquity. The other half consists of modern and contemporary art, photography, jewellery, twentieth-century design and works on paper.
This year’s flowers and plants
The month was different, but the stock market was also smaller and the period shorter. A nice challenge in terms of flower decoration because June has very different flowers than March. Beautiful Peonies, Delphinium, Lystianthus, Gloriosa, Eremurus, Agapanthus adorned the large test tubes in the entrance and on the squares. In the aisles, transparent vases with colored seasonal flowers steal the show. The guests were welcomed by beautiful agapanthus upon entry. Super nice to let these flower types be used for art.
Ten Kate was permanently present on location with a large number of arrangers. As soon as the fair closed, they went to work to ensure that the flowers looked their best every day.
