Dutch firm Tom Postma Design is set to transform the Park Avenue Armory for the U.S. debut of the arts and antiques show TEFAF, which will take place October 22 to 26.

“I added a second skin. It’s a complete turnaround situation, from dark to light,” says Tom Postma, the firm’s founder. “People who’ve been going there for years and years, even those who live around the corner, will see something different than they’ve ever seen before. It is also the first time that the public is allowed to visit the beautifully restored rooms.”

Drawing influence from the original fair (TEFAF Maastricht, which is the largest of its kind), Postma’s design will span the period rooms on the first and second floors, the public areas, the loan exhibition, and the restaurant space, as well as the main exhibition space in Drill Hall, and will include a floral presentation.
