Salon Art + Design — which made a triumphant return to the Park Avenue Armory from November 11th through 15th after being waylaid in 2020 by Covid — always flaunts more than its fair share of ‘Oh Wow!’ moments, but this stunning Wedge sofa and ottoman from Todd Merrill Studio was far and away one of my favorites this time around.

An annual favorite NYC design event is now behind us for the year, but you can bet I’ll be featuring many of the most spectacular pieces of art furniture from The Salon Art + Design in these pages in the coming weeks. Let’s kick off with a unique chair from Berlin-based, Bauhaus educated, multi-disciplinary designer Hannes Grebin, who has created upholstered seating inspired by questioning traditional domestic decor. Applying the principals of Cubism to design, Grebin masterfully deconstructs the traditional shapes and detailing of a ‘Dad’s Chair’ into simplified geometric shapes and interlocking planes.
