When I have entered the new DeLorenzo Gallery last week, I felt exactly how one should feel when entering a great gallery. The new space, designed by Samuel Amoia to look like a white jewelry box with its stunning limestone slab flooring, took my breath away. One of the world’s most influential and powerful galleries, DeLorenzo, which was founded in 1980 by Tony DeLorenzo, has recently moved to its new home, across from the Carlyle Hotel. Its dynamic talented director Adriana Friedman has truly shown her remarkable and sophisticated taste throughout this enormous space. It is filled with masterpieces of French Art Deco, with mid-century icons, pieces by Frank Lloyd Wright, George Nakashima, Alexandre Noll, and by newly-discovered contemporary designers, all carefully chosen and curated in a way only someone so conversant with the world of collectible design as Friedman, can accomplish. From January, I am going to start a program of conversations on design at the Gallery.
