What will you be showing at TEFAF this year?

Ole Höstbo, Dansk Møbelkunst: - This year we will see a very good collection of furniture from the 1950s and '60s along with some early PH lamps and rugs by Marta Maas Fjetterström and a vase by Anders Bruno Liljefors. Other highlights include a wall-mounted sofa by Finn Juhl from Kokfeldts villa, 1953, and six of Arne Jacobsen's drawer modules and a lamp, originally from the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen.

What does it mean for you to exhibit at TEFAF?

Ole Höstbo: -TEFAF Is one of the most important exhibitions. Exhibiting at TEFAF is seen also as proof among connoisseurs in the industry in that your objects are of the highest quality. There's only room for new members if former exhibitors choose to leave, which it almost never.

Ben Frija: -TEFAF means a lot to us, it is the very best fair for art, antiques and jewellery, but we also enjoy personally meeting international collectors who we would otherwise only have e-mail contact with.

What do you most look forward to during the fair?

Ole Höstbo: - We now look forward to once again, getting the chance to show the best we have to a large and interested audience. It's always fun to meet colleagues and old customers, but we also hope to generate interest in Nordic design among new customers. Every year we prepare ourselves far in advance for TEFAF, where we show only the very best.

Has interest in photography increased or decreased since you first took part in TEFAF?

Ben Frija: - Photography has as become larger and larger and now is in line with painting and sculpture, both in terms of interest and price level.
