The Salon Art + Design returns for its eighth edition at New York’s Park Avenue Armory. A fixture on the holiday gallery-hopping circuit, the fair is known for taking advantage of the Armory’s cavernous Drill Hall by encouraging exhibitors to create full installations that envelop visitors in their respective worlds. Unlike many art fairs who show either furniture or art, the Salon mixes all of its offerings, from vintage and modern furniture to 20th- and 21st-century blue-chip art together. This holistic approach, along with its exhibitor list—56 galleries from 13 different countries—is part of a general strategy to draw in younger collectors who tend to collect furniture and art in equal measure. Visit November 14 through 18 to scoop up a few collectible pieces before all the holiday shopping for, uh everyone else, takes its toll.
