At the other coast from the San Francisco Decorator Showcase, the Kips Bay Decorator Show House 2019 opened its doors in a luxury Manhattan home on May 2, 2019. Over the past four decades, the premier interior design event in New York City has again been organized in an exceptional location.
The 36-38 East 74th Street townhouse that currently is on the market for 30 million USD was recently transformed by 22 leading interior designers who brought their interior design visions and ideas to life.
The 1920 40’double-width Georgian townhouse a stone’s throw away from New York City’s Central Park and the Museum Mile boasts six levels, a circular, breathtaking staircase including an elevator that goes all the way to the basement and up as well as light-filled rooms.
The Kips Bay Decorator Show House is the most important fundraiser event of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club in New York to collect funds for their afterschool enrichment programs. Over the years, the organization has accumulated more than 22 million dollars that helped more than 10,000 children and youth to realize their potential. The program supports kids from the ages of six to 18 throughout the Bronx.
The 15,000 expected visitors see an outstanding exhibition of fine furnishings, art, and the latest technology in interior design enveloped in the latest interior design trends. The building with originally ten wood-burning fireplaces, an art studio and super-high ceilings were once owned George Whitney and later Dorothy Hearst Paley.
The talented interior designers show their creativity at this leading design event that set the standards of contemporary and modern interior design in North America. The house is open to the public to scout out the latest trends from May 2 until May 30, 2019.
