Anyone with an eye on design who hasn’t made it to the 46th annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House in Manhattan yet will want to add it to the calendar – quickly.
The design destination, which WAG toured during its preview days for a feature that ran here May 1 and will be followed by a photo essay in our June print issue, continues in a tony Lenox Hill townhouse.
Explore seven floors of design and decorating innovation in this annual showcase of fine furnishings, art and technology, as it continues daily through May 31.
For those looking to spot a bit of local talent, participants with ties to our area include Marcia Tucker Interiors, a Greenwich-based company that created a sophisticated dressing room and master bath. In addition, Blondie’s Treehouse – we profiled Howard K. Freilich, the Mamaroneck-headquartered company’s founder, back in 2014 – has some of its botanical décor on display, including an exterior moss wall, water feature accents and greenery, as part of the Charles Pavarini-designed home wellness retreat filling the penthouse.
Special events include a May 22 “Fresh Faces & Young Patrons Committee” cocktail party featuring first-time participating designers, including Wesley Moon along with Sasha Bikoff, Dan Fink and B.A. Torrey.
The Kips Bay Decorator Show House & Shop is at 110 E. 76th St. in Manhattan. Admission is $40. (Children over 6 accompanied by parent or guardian are admitted free on Family Saturdays). All proceeds from the Kips Bay Decorator Show House benefit the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club.
