The Art of Seating exhibit at the 2 Four Arts Plaza in Palm Beach features a diverse array of interior design pieces and other artistic objects. This exhibit is perfect for anyone interested in learning more about interior design or looking for inspiration for their home.

Each piece in the collection has a compelling story to tell about American history, the evolution of American design, and incredible artistry and craftsmanship. It is a fantastic and comprehensive collection of iconic and historic chairs reaching from the mid-1800s to pieces from today’s studio movement.

The objects are from the Thomas H. and Diane DeMell Jacobsen Ph.D. Foundation, and offer a stylistic journey in furniture with showstoppers by John Henry Belter, George Hunzinger, the Herter Brothers, the Stickley Brothers, Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles and Ray Eames, Eero Saarinen, Isamu Noguchi, Frank Gehry, and others.  There will be a free Illustrated Lecture at the Four Arts on December 8, 2018 at 11 a.m. with collector Diane DeMell Jacobsen, whose eponymous foundations provided many of the objects for The Art of Seating.

Open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 1 to 5 p.m.

Admission is $10 | No charge for Four Arts members and children 14 and younger

The Four Arts is located at 100 Four Arts Plaza, Palm Beach, Florida
