The 59th Annual Winter Antiques Show
The 59th annual Winter Antiques Show opens to the public on Friday, January 25, bringing together around 73 fine and decorative arts exhibitors. Notable highlights include: A unique desk and chair made in 1965 by renowned Studio Craft furniture designer Wendell Castle at Lost City Arts, Didier Ltd. with a carefully curated selection of jewelry, Magen H Gallery, exhibiting the work of French post-war designers, and a stacked walnut Castle coffee table (1977) at Moderne Gallery.
Another highlight of the show is the popular Young Collectors Night, a much anticipated venue for “new collectors, emerging philanthropists, and art and design enthusiasts.” More than 80 of the country’s best known interior designers will be illustrating the freshest ways to incorporate classic antique designs into more modern decors.
Benefits from the show go to East Side House Settlement, a non-profit institution that provides social services to community residents in the South Bronx. The Winter Antiques Show was created by the charity in 1955, and is still owned and produced by East Side House. The Show is the only major one in New York from which all net proceeds benefit a charity.
