A Haven for Discriminating Collectors Arrives in New York

The Salon Art + Design returns to the Park Avenue Armory for the fourth consecutive year.

The Salon Art + Design, a platform for the world’s most discriminating collectors, international designers, tastemakers and influencers, returns to the Park Avenue Armory for the fourth consecutive year. From November 12 to 16 collectors will have the opportunity to acquire material from every decade of the twentieth century through contemporary art and design. Topping last year’s grand success, The Salon Art + Design, will now showcase 55 exhibitors – 49 returning galleries from 10 countries, and 6 new exhibitors. Says Jill Bokor, Executive Director of The Salon Art + Design, “With every passing year the roster of exhibitors becomes stronger. It’s a testament to the strength of the New York market that so many leading international galleries aspire to exhibit at The Salon.” Beginning November 12, the most intriguing collection of design and fine art will be assembled under one roof.

This year’s highlights include:

  • 6 new galleries:  Each of these brings new material to the fair including mid-century Italian, 60’s and 70’s French, and modern European ceramics.
  • Amazing solo installations:  Dealers are saving great pieces for The Salon. There will be a number of single artist/designer booths.  Friedman-Benda has commissioned an entire booth of new work by the Campana Brothers, Carpenters Workshop showcases the streamlined work of Robert Stadler.  Galerie Marcelpoil will show the midcentury work of Andre Sornay.
  • Last year’s show saw sales increased dramatically across the board: $66 million of art + design sold in 5 days.  
  • Not to be missed is the jewelry exhibition by Temple St. Clair held in the historic library of The Armory and a loan exhibition by Paris’ oldest and most elegant trunk maker—Maison Goyard.

The success of The Salon lies in the quality of the exhibitors, the extremely international flavor of the material, and this eclecticism that is highly sought by today’s collectors and influencers. The Salon is the only international fair of this caliber to combine styles, genres, and periods cutting a universal and timeless swath. Other fairs allow art, but no design or conversely design without art. The organizers’ willingness to consider all material—historic to contemporary—is predicated on the belief that today’s designers and collectors insist on a vibrant mix—as long as the quality is impeccable. This year’s partners of The Salon include returning Haute Joaillaire Temple St. Clair, Architectural Digest, Maison Goyard, Ferrari, Ruinart Champagne, the Financial Times, W Magazine, Artsy and Cooper Hewitt, to name a few. The Salon Art + Design is produced by Sanford L. Smith + Associates.
