For those unfamiliar with the Kips Bay Decorator Show House, it is essentially the Met Gala for interior designers. Over the last 47 years, Kips Bay paired with the Boys and Girls Club began transforming Manahattan homes into elegant interior design exhibits. Designers and Architects from across the country come together to collaborate taking on the project of a home room by room showing their unique styles and influencing design trends worldwide.
In 2017 Kips Bay expanded from Manhattan to Palm Beach, with its success, Kips Bay continues growing now down South to Dallas Texas. The show is star-studded with lone star state designers having 23 of the 27 designers from Texas.
