In the chilly air of New York’s fall, The Salon Art + Design, one of the noteworthy art and design trade shows, attracts collectors and interior designers from the city and beyond. At the Park Avenue Armory, 56 galleries from 11 countries display the art pieces and interior design products ranging from historical, modern to contemporary at the Wade Thompson Drill Hall. The Park Avenue Armory itself is an attractive and unique venue in the City. Built in 1877 and 1881 in the style of a 19th-century European train station, it houses the biggest surviving collection of 19th-century interiors in New York. The Wade Thompson Drill Hall designed by avant-garde architects Louis Comfort Tiffany and the Herter Brothers has an 80-foot-high barrel-vaulted roof and is one of the largest unobstructed spaces in the megacity. After the building fell in disarray and dire need of renovation, Swiss architects Herzog & De Meuron were commissioned for its reconstruction and refurbishment in collaboration with the Platt Byard Dovell White Architects. Upon completion, the building has become one of the prime locations in New York City for exhibiting the work of visionary artists, directors, performers, and musicians enabling them to display their talent and craft. From 8 to 12 November 2018, as every year, The Salon Art + Design serves as a platform for art and interior galleries to showcase furniture and designs from the late 19th to 21st century as well as presenting young artists and designers. The trade show brings the latest trends in interiors and international living styles and culture to the eclectic audience. Art and design pieces from Britain, France, Germany, Italy, South Africa, Asia, Scandinavia reflect the current styles in furniture, lighting, ceramics, and fine and decorative arts. The Salon Art + Design is not to be missed by internationally interested design enthusiasts and architecture historians.
