The neighborhood of Chelsea is a sure stop if you are interested in visiting modern and contemporary art galleries but when it comes to design, there is no sole neighborhood to go to. Unlike Paris where a stroll down Rue de Seine can offer the opportunity to see over 10 design galleries and showrooms, in NYC these are less in numbers and a bit more spread out on the island.
On a quick day trip to NYC, looking to catch up on design shows I mapped out my top 6 favorites. I love these galleries for their high quality of inventory, restoration practices, forward thinking contemporary design and historic research. If you are going to spend over $10,000 on a sofa it would be great to know that there has been a careful approach to the designer’s market, preservation and uniqueness. Even if you don’t have that kind of budget for your home collection, these galleries and showrooms won’t disappoint to experience design in a new and informative way. You can click on the gallery or showroom’s name to visit their website and learn more about their programming and inventory.
What’s the difference between a design gallery and a design showroom? More on the topic in my next blog post.
