Twenty-three of the country’s top designers and architects will be coming together for the upcoming Kips Bay Decorator Show House 2019, the 47th annual event in New York City. The house will be open to the public from May 2-31, 2019 – and it’s sure to be a true delight.
This year’s show house will be located at 36-38 East 74th Street in Manhattan, where each of these esteemed industry professionals will transform different rooms of the 12,425 square-foot townhouse to display their striking signature styles.
“This year, we have an exciting mix of veteran Kips Bay participants and first timers, which always leads to a dramatic and stunning transformation,” interior designer Bunny Williams, Kips Bay President’s Dinner Chair, said in a press release. “Each year, we are so appreciative that these designers dedicate their precious hours and energy to a cause that is so important to the community. “Every year, we work hard to find an exceptional house that will act as the ideal setting for renowned designers from all over the world to display their personal styles.”
“We’re looking forward to seeing the unique visions of this powerhouse team come to life,” Show House Co-Chair and interior designer Jamie Drake of Drake/Anderson added. “This year’s show house is incredibly unique and will beautifully showcase the impressive talents of this year’s renowned team of designers.”
The whole elaborate event benefits the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, which offers innovative after-school and enrichment programs for 10,000 youth in ten locations throughout the Bronx. Thanks to the show house attracting around 15,000 guests per season, the organization has raised over $24 million to date. Sponsors like Kohler, AJ Madison, Hearst Design Group, Morgan Stanley, Benjamin Moore, Cambria, The Rug Company, The Shade Store, New York Design Center, and Schumacher make it possible for designers to go all out displaying their dream creations.
“Beyond the visibility and name recognition that participation in the Kips Bay Decorator Show House entails, they should know that because of their dedication and talent, we will continue to surpass our fundraising goals, which are so crucial to enhancing after-school and enrichment programs for our city’s youth,” Show House Co-Chair and interior designer Alexa Hampton said in the statement. “It’s the perfect backdrop for creativity, and we are
eager to share the transformed Show House with the public and designers alike to raise essential funding for New York City’s youth.”
