Salon 94 is a contemporary art gallery, which occupies the ground level of a townhouse, where the owner lives with her family.
This is the first furniture exhibition of Paris-based fashion designer Rick Owens. I happened to like his approach to fashion very much, so my interest for his talent, applied elsewhere, is a natural outcome. I also love the concept of a mini-gallery as an extension of a home. The exhibition is really just one room, the bedroom. The Marble Bed (enormous!!!) that you see on the picture was sold for $216,000! Not sure about mink curtains though.
Salon 94 has a downtown branch – Salon 94 Freeman’s – where the space is generous for large exhibitions. And there is a new addition that is about to be opened in September, the third exhibition space, Salon94 Bowery, also downtown.
This one though, at 12 East 94th Street, is special. In addition to a very interesting choice of exhibits, it has an intimate feel of visiting somebody’s home.
