Unbiased design market specialist as your guide – Our private tours of PAD are given exclusively by Elizabeth Chase Rochette or Susan Boullier, both of whom have strong backgrounds in design and extensive experience of the design market. (See our CVs at We spend time in the months leading up to PAD talking to the galleries and researching what they will be showing so that we are able to offer thoughtfully curated tours.

We focus on the most significant pieces exhibited within both a historical and aesthetic context and also from a market-driven perspective.

Opportunity to talk with the dealers – Clients will be introduced to several of the available dealers, with whom we have strong professional relationships, and have the opportunity to discuss and question their choices of objects on view.

 Market Discussion and Take Away – As the clients are guided through the fair we will discuss the evolution of the market for collectible design, current trends and market influences. Clients will receive a ‘take away’ document, which will provide references of the galleries they saw, explanations of the objects we highlighted and a market overview.

 Facilitating of purchasing – Artecase sources design and will be able to provide follow up information to clients after the fair, facilitate purchases and shipping of any of the objects.

Above all, we want to transmit the passion we feel for collectible design and make each client’s visit to the fair fun, exciting and enlightening.  And of course, we greet clients at the entrance with pre-bought tickets so they can avoid lengthy queues as far as possible!

Limited availability.
