Returning with 55 exhibitors from 10 countries, the fourth edition of the Salon Art + Design offers a mix of modern and contemporary art and design in a broad range of mediums at the Park Avenue Armory in New York. Perusing the aisles of the elegant fair—one of the few to feature both art and design—Whitehot made a list of things that we would like to take home from the fair to add to our Brooklyn loft.

Galeries Ulrich Fiedler and Chastel-Marechal, from Berlin and Paris, respectively, and New York’s Demisch Denant have prime pieces of vintage design, while Robilant + Voena and Richard Nagy, both from London, have coveted works of modern art. But, there’s an abundance of exciting new works, including Zaha Hadid’s cast-acrylic Liquid Glacial Chair, Michael Eden’s 3D-printed Pink Vortex vase and Stefan Bishop’s bronze Puddle Side Table.

Scroll through the images below and see if there is something you want to spice up your space. WM
