Each year, as the hustle bustle of the holiday comes to a screeching halt, and the New Year is upon us, I begin to ask myself… What do I really look forward to? At this time of year it is always the Winter Antiques Show, at the Park Avenue Armory.
Although my specialty is kitchens, baths, and fine architectural millwork for the home, I find that this show is a place to learn and view the very best craftsmanship. I find that my design work is often inspired by so many of these rare and beautiful pieces. A particular client of mine, who is an avid collector of fine furniture and art, walks the show with me as we share our views and appreciation for these rare and beautiful treasures.
See below for more information on the upcoming event!
The Winter Antiques Show marks its 62nd year as the most prestigious art, antiques, and design fair in America, featuring the “best of the best” from Antiquity through the present. Held at the historic Park Avenue Armory in New York City, the Show provides new and established collectors, curators, dealers, and design professionals with opportunities to view and purchase exceptional pieces showcased by 73 exhibitors. One-third of the Show’s exhibitors are specialists in Americana, with the rest featuring English, European, and Asian fine and decorative arts.
The Winter Antiques Show is an annual benefit for East Side House Settlement, a community resource in the South Bronx that celebrates its 125th anniversary in 2016. East Side House’s programs focus on education and technology as gateways out of poverty and as the keys to economic opportunity. All revenues from the show’s general admissions and the net proceeds from the preview parties and other events go East Side House and contribute substantially to its private philanthropic budget. No part of sales made by exhibitors is received by East Side House. – http://winterantiquesshow.com/
