The Future Perfect was founded by David Alhadeff in 2003 and has become one of the world’s foremost contemporary design galleries. From its inception, The Future Perfect has been distinguished by its thoroughly creative and ebullient vision and strong curatorial focus, which showcases studio-created works alongside one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces.
In its 16-year history, the gallery, as its name implies, has introduced some of the seminal design talents of our times, including highly-collectible works by Lindsey Adelman, Jason Miller, and Piet Hein Eek. Considered a catalyst as well as an industry authority, The Future Perfect has also forged relationships with some of the world’s most influential artists, designers, and craftspeople.
Today, The Future Perfect’s prestigious gallery program is tailored to its unique locations in North America: The original flagship in New York’s NoHo, a new Casa on Manhattan’s West Side; The Complex, in San Francisco; and Casa Perfect, in Beverly Hills, CA. By design, each space offers a highly customized environment that includes exclusive exhibitions from cutting edge contemporary artists complemented by an eclectic mix of contemporary production and gallery pieces, all of which can be discovered under one roof.
Alhadeff’s ambitious vision has led the New York Times to declare him the “foremost champion of American design.” A self-studied aesthete, Alhadeff had always been infatuated with cutting-edge American design, but knew of few outlets for it. With its recent opening of Casa Perfect in New York, the company continues to evolve the boundaries of what contemporary design can achieve. Each Future Perfect location – be it in New York or California – offers site-specific collections that adhere to Alhadeff’s original vision: the coalescence of playfulness, craftsmanship, and innovation. Alhadeff and The Future Perfect also continue to expand their community: shifting the borders between gallerist, dealer, and merchant, opening new pathways for artists and collectors alike.
