For those who live in the New York area, the 43rd Annual Decorator Show House in Kips Bay is now open to the public from May 14th to June 11th benefiting the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club.
It is a great venue to see the latest design trends up close. The history of the show house exhibition is described below by the sponsoring organization:
Each year, celebrated interior designers transform a luxury Manhattan home into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art and technology. This all began in 1973 when several dedicated supporters of the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club launched the Kips Bay Decorator Show House to raise critical funds for much needed after school and enrichment programs for New York City children. Over the course of four decades, this project has grown into a must-see event for thousands of design enthusiasts and is renowned for sparking interior design trends throughout the world.
