Saldillo Becara 2009. The visit

He Graduation Becara It is a classic within the Madrid decorative circuit. An appointment that comes every year with the first heats, and that is a good opportunity to get an important piece at a more affordable price, or simply some small details with which to complete our home.

This year we have not missed the call to be able to tell you what we have seen there. Who writes has been visiting this saldillo for years and, although normally I have always come to the opening, this year I let time go by a little, being able to verify that after almost a month of its opening, the genre not only is not scarce, but that the purchase becomes much more pleasant and easy.

The first days that this market opens, it usually receives a flood of visits. He parking It becomes difficult and the ride through the interior of this huge ship becomes a rosary of pushes in search of the desired piece. But this morning the atmosphere was great, few people browsing in order and without haste, without queues in the box, being able to walk without problems or discomfort among its furniture and exhibitors.

Unfortunately, the company's policy does not allow you to take pictures of the interior, so we can only comment on what we have seen there. As soon as we get to the place, without getting out of the car, we can already admire a outdoor furniture exhibition and large planters, which rest under several jaimas sheltered by the extensive veil of vines that cover the facade.

Once inside a huge diaphanous ship welcomes us. We see many white furniture, both smooth and aged. Bookstores, vajilleros, bedside tables and chairs with very good appearance, exposed forming environments.

In this saldillo, know the pre-sale prices It is impossible task. Those who like to feel the delight that tells you how much you have saved when you buy a piece of furniture or object, will not be able to experience that compulsive pleasure, since only the final price appears. Of course, each piece of furniture has a sign in which you can clearly read both the price and the measurements.

I will tell you what most caught my attention. Near the entrance, a dining room set consisting of chairs and Louis XVI style armchairs, at 180 and 290 euros respectively, gathered in the heat of a Canadian oak table, the price of which is 1120 euros.

One of the furniture that I especially liked, for its originality, was an armchair whose design resembles that of the famous Wassily armchair by Marcel Breuer, but in a more rustic version that replaces the iron tube with rough wood and the seat, arms and backrest skin, it has a deliberately worn finish. Despite its somewhat fragile appearance, I attest to its comfort.

Here you can find antiques, usually bunkers, tables, tapestries and some other object. A large antique chest, finished in greenish tones, was priced at 520 euros.

A beautiful white wrought iron sofa bed offered a good accommodation and excellent decoration for 750 euros, topped by a striped mat. As a novelty, this year we saw several upholstered screens in different colors, of which it was impossible to specify the price at a glance. The sofas had different prices, highlighting comfort and solid appearance; our attention was drawn to a blue three-seater model for 1200 euros.

For outside we highlight a beautiful source of iron with an oxide finish that cost 850 euros, next to an iron table and marble top for 380 euros. A huge 213 cm iron and wood bench, 550 euros, was another garden offer.

Along the way we find several exhibitors in the center, classified by colors, in which are the small accessories. Here we saw teaspoons lid in porcelain at only one euro the unit. The dishes are sold by pieces, being able to buy dishes from 3 euros. In the same way, there are also some pieces of glassware by units. To finish setting the table, cutlery with plastic handle for 66 euros the 48 pieces. Several white wooden ornaments that mimic fruits, could be obtained from 1.50 euros.

We also found Photo frames, from 10 euros, and a collection of lampshades for lamps of different sizes in raw colors, from 15 euros. In textile, quilts in Toile de Jouy for 75 euros, linen tablecloths from 45 euros, and Indian tablecloths printed for 78 euros. A ancient tapestry of Rajasthan, with measures of 210 x 140 cm. It was priced at 1000 euros. You can also find fabrics from 8 euros, cushions and a small selection of clothes, bags and necklaces.

We left without buying anything, this year we are in crisis and we have the house furnished. You will wonder if it is worth going. Everything is relative, but if you have time, car, money, a house to furnish or just want to browse, the answer is yes.
