"Antique Decorative Art is a celebration of rare and beautiful objects that talented artists and craftspeople have created throughout time and across all cultures, which continue to inform and inspire us today."


Ian Hadlow is the proprietor of Antique Decorative Art, and has more than twenty years experience as an antique dealer.  A collector, art lover and history buff, Ian turned his passion for the decorative arts initially into a part-time business and then later into a full time career.  


The tiny gallery was opened as a venue from which to:

  • sell antique furniture, objet d'art, sculpture and fine art,

  • conduct related research,

  • exhibit antique (and sometimes contemporary) artworks, and

  • consult for interior design projects.

The gallery is a friendly, accessible space in the heart of historic Paddington in Sydney, Australia. Please don't hesitate to visit or make contact with any enquiry.
