Go-go Larry Gagosian has long been a leader in the edgy contemporary art world and now he’s headlining his first-ever decorative arts exhibition in New York. On view at his West 24th Street Chelsea outpost is the latest limited-edition furniture of Australian designer Marc Newson (b. 1964). Cut from single slabs of Carrara marble, Newson’s massive chairs, tables and screens represent a new kind of artistry in the refined antiques world -- and they’re just the right thing for hip hedge-funder lofts. With half of the show purportedly sold by opening weekend, at prices ranging from $100,000 to $400,000, Newson could be the next Chippendale. Marc Newson, Jan. 25-Mar. 3, 2007, at Gagosian Gallery 555 West 24th Street, New York, N.Y. 10011.
