Join My Design Agenda and discover everything you need to know about Salon Art+Design 2019.
Salon Art+Design has differentiated itself from other fairs by including a highly curated mixture of historic and contemporary collectible design and fine art. Just as top interior designers create eclectic homes for discerning clients, Salon exhibitors are encouraged to create immersive environments mirroring the way we live today. The success of Salon Art+Design lies in the quality of its exhibiting galleries, the extremely international flavor of the material and eclecticism that is highly sought by today’s collectors and tastemakers.
Across the board, there’s a great degree of regional diversity in the fair’s expected offerings, with exhibitors hailing from France, Lebanon, Morocco, the Netherlands, Sweden, and many more far-flung nations. Brazilian design, which is currently experiencing a prolonged period of popularity, will be better represented than in years prior. And for the first time ever, the fair will include a Barcelona gallery. Both of these points, noted by Bokor, are indicative of the fair’s “ever-widening geography,” as she puts it.
Both young and seasoned collectors approach the design market, seeking the new, the uncommon, and the accessible. The material offered at Salon Art+Design ranges from periods that have now become classic: Bauhaus, Art Deco, and mid-century design coexisting happily with work by young and established contemporary makers. Salon is vetted and the only international fair of this caliber to combine styles, genres, and periods–cutting a universal and timeless swath.
With its immense 55,000-square-foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall, modeled after 19th-century European train stations, and historic rooms designed by leading period designers Louis Comfort Tiffany and the Herter Brothers, Park Avenue Armory offers an amazing space to view cutting edge art + design.
