Design Seen: Cornering the Market

  • Samantha Brooks

On November 9, RH Contemporary Art (855.807.1100, www.rhcontemporaryart.com) will unveil a six-story, 28,000-square-foot art gallery at 437 West 16th St. The Manhattan venue will be the first in a series of such spaces that the new division of the 33-year-old luxury furnishings company Restoration Hardware plans to open around the country; the second is slated for 2014 in Los Angeles. Fifteen curators have been charged with selecting the galleries’ contemporary works, which for the New York debut will consist of a number of commissioned pieces by five artists: Nathan Baker, Toby Christian, Peter Demos, Samantha Thomas (Landscapification #3, shown in photos above left), and Natasha Wheat (Field Without Color #10, in photos above middle; Field Without Color #7, in photos above right). The offerings in the November exhibitions will include paintings, sculpture, and mixed media and carry prices ranging from $4,750 to $26,000.
