New York gallery Demisch Danant gets colorful with modern and contemporary furniture
Up until February 22nd, admirers of 1960s and ’70s French design may observe a richly laid out exhibition of upholstered furniture at Demisch Danant gallery in Greenwich Village, New York. Appropriately titled Color Diaries, the presentation provides an ample selection of works by such pioneers of French furniture design as Jean-Pierre Laporte, Pierre Paulin, Joseph-André Motte, Olivier Mourgue, and René-Jean Calliette.
Together, the saturated hues and curved, clean lines of their oeuvres harmonize with each other in the gallery’s ground floor space. Augmenting the interplay of color and form are textile works by American artist Sheila Hicks, which alternately punctuate and limn the abundant presentation.
