Out & About: Salon Art + Design 12th Edition

Salon Art + Design, produced by Sanford L. Smith + Associates made its return to the Park Avenue Armory in New York City this week and we were thrilled to make our way to the show. Join us as we share some highlights from their 12th edition…

Salon presents the world’s best design – vintage, modern and contemporary – enhanced by blue-chip 20th century art and features leading art and design galleries from all over the world, spotlighting the trends of collectible design.

The show was partnered with one of our favourite designers Cox London and how exciting it was to stroll under the giant magnolia shaped chandelier! Made from nearly 4,000 individually hand forged and painted iron leaves, the chandelier boasts blossom ‘plumes’ as lampshades. We were particularly excited as we will be showcasing Cox London’s work at our new Warren Street Hotel, opening in 2024.

We loved this stunning Johan Tapp burl wood oak clad chest with three draws, oak leaf escutcheons and double acorn cluster pulls…

It wasn’t the only treasure! At Charles Burnand Gallery, we found designer Gareth Devonald Smith’s sculptural masterpiece. We’re excited to share that we’ll be incorporating one of Gareth’s 20 foot sculptures above the bar at Warren Street Hotel.

We were also interested to see the work of an artist we’ve been following for a while. DenHolm is going from strength to strength, making beautiful stone pieces that are witty and unusual…

Tuleste Factory is an art and design gallery located in the heart of Chelsea and we were so excited to see our very own artist and Firmdale Art Ambassador Lyora Pissarro exhibiting her work. These paintings are layered with light and her utopian landscapes are constantly moving and undulating. Unlike anything you have ever seen and totally mesmerising, Lyora’s work has to be experienced firsthand to be truly believed.

Mercado Moderno is a gallery based in Rio de Janeiro, showcasing modern and contemporary Brazilian furniture and artwork. We were completely taken by this wonderful painting by Jaider Esbell an indigenous Brazilian artist. Its yellow hues and bright colours complemented this rather masculine mid-century bench beneath…

Some interesting artwork on display at Paris based Maisonjaune Studio included this wall sculpture by Francesc Carulla Serra. It shows large figures and horses on the facade of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.

The most interesting gallery this year for us was Amsterdam based Mia Karlova Galerie. The artists exhibited are unbelievably experimental, using materials in ways we haven’t seen before and pushing the boundaries of art and sculpture. Jordan Van der Ven uses wire and layers of concrete to create these Curved Sculpture chairs.

Vadim Kibardin is based in Prague and his work is like a Gothic fairytale. This ‘paper’ sofa was made from layers and layers of cardboard!

We hope you’ve found inspiration from this year’s Salon Art + Design highlights. We are already looking forward to the next one!
