The latest trends in interior design conquer New York
The seventh edition of The Salon Art + Design, held in the Park Avenue Armory in New York City has just ended.
The Salon Art + Design, one of the most exclusive interior design fairs in the world, has just celebrated its seventh edition from November 8 to 12 at the emblematic Park Avenue Armory in New York City. Carried out by Sanford Smith + Associates, the show that has been gaining in reputation year after year both for the quality, diversity and curation of the exhibited pieces, as well as for the selection of its participating galleries.
Fifty-six galleries from 11 different countries were present in the fair and exhibited design pieces and artefacts ranging from classic antiquity to contemporary pieces, with a special emphasis to 20TH Century collectibles. The show is in fact a unique showcase and a forecaster of trends in vintage and modern pieces as well as contemporary ones. The mix of furniture and objects from iconic names such as Gio Ponti and Ettore Sottsass with others from emerging artists distinguishes this fair from others in a unique way.
International representation of quality
The sixth edition of The Salon, held in November last year, received more than 12,000 visitors. This year the novelty has been marked by the new exhibitors, Carolle Thibaut-Pomerantz (France), Chahan Gallery (France), Donzella (USA), Galerie de la Béraudiére (Belgium), Galerie Hervout (France), Glass Past (USA), Heller Gallery (USA), Mouvements Moderns (France), Phoenix Ancient Art (Switzerland / USA), Southern Guild (South Africa) and The Future Perfect (USA).
In total, 26 American exhibitors and 30 European and international galleries offered a selection of classic and abstract antiquities, Art Nouveau, Deco, Mid Century Modern, designs from the 70s, 80s and 90s and contemporary works.
Different artistic disciplines
The show also hosted a series of special exhibitions, including an installation by contemporary American visual artist Paula Hayes. The practice of Hayes, widely recognized for catalyzing the resurgence of the twenty-first century terrarium in its contemporary interpretation, redefines and expands the parameters of art beyond static inanimate objects by concentrating on the natural environment.
