When we think of the salon, we think sophistication, erudition, and wit. We think 16th-century Italy, and 17th- and 18th-century France. We may also think of New York City—the Algonquin Round Table in the 1920s, the Partisan Review intellectuals in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. In the spirit of the salon, we have the annual fair Salon Art + Design, which this year brings 51 international exhibitors to the Park Avenue Armory. A newcomer to the fair is Le Lab Atelier, from Egypt, which shows Middle Eastern design like you’ve never seen it before. Eclectic and rigorously curated, Salon Art + Design encourages its exhibiting galleries to present their prize pieces in immersive and inspiring settings. —E.C.
