Preview the Exceptional Finds at The Salon Art + Design
The Salon Art + Design returns to New York’s iconic Park Avenue Armory on November 8 with 56 exhibiting galleries, most of which are international. The annual fair presents historical, modern, and contemporary furniture, groundbreaking design and art from the late 19th through the 21st centuries. This year’s iteration features offerings as diverse as a rare Elephanteau armchair by Jean Royère at Galerie Chastel Marechal to postwar masters drawings at David Lévy & Associés and treasures from the ancient world at Ariadne Galleries.
Following a landmark sixth installment last year, which welcomed more than 12,000 visitors, the 2018 edition of The Salon aims to bring together a diverse, international group of art and design dealers showcasing exceptional global material for every taste.
See our selections below for a preview of some of the most anticipated booths at the fair.
David Gill Gallery, London
Returning to New York’s celebrated furniture and art fair, David Gill Gallery will be presenting an exciting group display of works by Mattia Bonetti, Fredrikson Stallard, Zaha Hadid, Barnaby Barford, and Michele Oka Doner, along with artists and designers new to the London-based gallery.
Galerie Chastel-Maréchal, Paris
Galerie Chastel-Maréchal will present an exceptional selection of modern Brazilian design from the 1950s to the 1980s and French designers from the 1920s to the 1980s at The Salon—a selection of Brazilian pieces that have never been shown before. The gallery will also show extremely rare pieces from Eugène Printz, mirrors from Line Vautrin, and works by André Arbus.
Hostler Burrows, New York
Hostler Burrows, a New York gallery specializing in Nordic and American design, integrates contemporary and vintage work with a primary focus on studio ceramics, particularly work by female artists. Its booth at The Salon will feature works by Finnish ceramic artist Kristina Riska, among others.
Maison Gerard, New York
Founded in 1974, Maison Gerard specializes in fine French Art Deco, 20th-century, and contemporary design furniture, lighting, and objets d’art. Incorporating works from the early 1900s to the present day, Maison Gerard creates unique and modern spaces reflecting the philosophy that no one today lives in a period-defined room.
Southern Guild, Cape Town
Southern Guild has spearheaded the high-end design category in Africa. In 2011, it became the first African gallery to present at Design Miami, and in 2015 it was the first to be featured at Christie’s annual design auction in London. This year’s fair marks Southern Guild’s first appearance at The Salon.
