French Design Comes to New York’s Chelsea

    French furniture dealer Renaud Vuaillat has opened a flagship New York gallery specializing in limited-edition modern furniture by European designers. Twentyfirst/Twentyfirst, which opened in late February, offers unique design objects and furniture, including Vuaillat’s own modern collection and rotating group collections from emerging artists. Vuaillat has sold furniture in Paris for 15 years, both at the Clignancourt flea market and later at his own gallery in St. Germain. His New York gallery will customize any piece in the collection, which ranges from about $2,500 to $50,000. Among the pieces presently available are François Corbeau’s polished tin drawers, $45,000 (shown), and Bernar Venet’s waxed steel sofa, $42,500. (917.353.7587)
