My Favorites from The Salon: Art + Design
While all of the selections are 20th Century, each of these creators were inspired by traditional forms but reimagined them in a modern way. Each piece would speak well on its own but would work even better grouped with the others in a room.
I have always loved Andre Sornay because work always feels refined but artful, and his use of nails as applied decoration reads as iconic.
My number one tip for a new design collector:
Collecting really good examples of someone’s work, even if it is a lesser known artist or artisan, is much better than collecting pieces of lesser quality from better known creators.
Designers to watch in 2014:
I am looking forward to exploring this at the Salon!
