Heading 5

Salon Art + Design showcases the pinnacle of design, presenting the world's finest vintage, modern, and contemporary pieces alongside blue-chip 20th-century artworks. Featuring leading art and design galleries from around the globe, as well as cutting-edge makers, the fair highlights the evolving trends of collectible design. For more than a decade, Salon has integrated both fine and decorative arts within the context of contemporary life, reflecting the belief that today's designers and collectors shape environments rather than merely accumulate objects. Salon's success lies in the exceptional quality of its exhibiting galleries, diverse international representation, and vetting, which are highly sought after by today's collectors and tastemakers. Appealing to seasoned connoisseurs and emerging collectors alike, Salon offers a comprehensive yet carefully curated collection, ensuring there is something to captivate every discerning taste.

About Sanford L. Smith + Associates

SLSA's current portfolio includes renowned events including Salon Art + Design, ABAA New York International Antiquarian Book Fair, The ADAA Art Show, and ESA Ephemera Fair. In 2024, after the retirement and passing of its founder, Sanford L. Smith, SLSA’s leadership mantle was handed to partners, Jennifer Stark, Nicky Dessources, and Jill Bokor, who will see the company and brands it represents into the future. They look forward to continuing Sanford Smith’s legacy and taking the company into new and exciting territories in the coming years.
