Szalon (pronounced “salon”) is dedicated to Hungarian and Central European antiques of the early 20th Century. The showroom features furniture and decorative arts from the Vienna Secession, Art Deco and Bauhaus eras, presenting a highly accomplished treasure trove to American collectors.
Rarely seen in the U.S., Hungarian design combines indigenous motifs with medieval and eastern influences for uniquely-flavored Modernist furnishings. Clean, sensual lines, gorgeous native woods and fine detailing make these pieces equally suitable to period and contemporary interiors. The Szalon collection features works by Josef Hoffmann, Otto Wagner, Gustav Giegel, Dagobert Peche, and Joseph Maria Olbrich, as well as pieces by Hungary’s best known native designer, Lajos Kozma, and the renowned Zsolnay ceramics factory, among many others.
Announced by the dramatic grillwork of its facade, Szalon is an extraordinary space. Designed by interior designer and owner Judith Hoffman as a contemporary interpretation of period influences, the showroom exudes Deco glamour in an atmosphere of inviting comfort. Szalon is active night and day through the gallery’s salon program - intellectual soirees reminiscent of times past. Already cited by the New York Times, Art & Auction, California Homes and House Beautiful, Szalon has become a design destination.
Public hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday by appointment only.
