the 2013 Kips Bay Kips Bay Decorator Show House
Every year, celebrated interior designers transform a luxury Manhattan home into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art, and technology. The event began in 1973 when several dedicated women’s committee members of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club launched the Kips Bay Decorator Show House to raise funds for much needed after school and enrichment programs for New York City children. Over the course of four decades, this project has raised in excess of $17 million and grown into a “must destination” for thousands of design enthusiasts and is recognized for launching interior design trends throughout the world. Today, the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club is one of the most prominent and responsive youth development agencies in New York City and a “flagship” of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
