I’ll be participating in the President’s dinner for Kips Bay this year and was excited to just get the list of fabulous designers and architects who will be involved in this year’s show house!
BRONX, NY (March 12, 2013) – Twenty-two of the nation’s most celebrated interior designers and architects will travel across the country to participate in this year’s 42nd Annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House hosted by New York’s most prominent youth organization, the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club. Each designer will spend the next eight weeks transforming a distinct space of Manhattan’s iconic Villard Mansion at 457 Madison Avenue, The Mansion on Madison.
Hand-selected by the Kips Bay Decorator Show House Committee, this year’s talented designers will revive the historic interiors of the famed building, which was originally the north wing of the famous Villard House. Today, The Mansion on Madison sits adjacent to luxury hotel, The New York Palace, and is connected by a grand courtyard. Together, the Kips Bay Decorator Show House will offer visitors to the hotel unique packages and limited edition offerings throughout the month of May.
“We are honored to invite such an illustrious team of designers and architects this year to transform one of the nation’s most legendary mansions and pay tribute to its rich history,” said Bunny Williams, celebrated interior designer and this year’s Show House Chair. “With this extraordinary team, we are confident that we will surpass this year’s fund-raising goal for the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club to further enhance after-school and enrichment programs for both our region and the nation’s youth.”
An estimated 20,000 people are expected to tour the finished Show House which serves as the non-profit organization’s premier fundraiser. The house will be open to the public seven days a week, May 1 through May 29.
