Twenty-Two of the Nation’s Top Designers and Architects Unveil Finished Rooms at Manhattan’s Arthur Sachs Mansion to Celebrate the Kips Bay Boys & Girl’s Club’s 100 Years of Service 

NEW YORK, NY (May 14, 2015) – The internationally recognized 43rd Annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House officially opened to the public this week on Thursday, May 14th at the legendary Arthur Sachs Mansion, revealing the creativity and design expertise of twenty-two of the nation’s most acclaimed interior designers and architects.

This year the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, a renowned local youth development center in the Bronx and flagship of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, celebrates its milestone 100th anniversary of serving the community’s youth. For the next month, an estimated 20,000 people are expected to tour the completed Show House, which serves as the organization’s premiere fundraiser. Each designer was given approximately eight weeks to transform their assigned space in the Arthur Sachs Mansion, the historic home of Arthur Sachs of investment firm Goldman Sachs, built in 1909 by architects of the Gilded Age, Buchman & Fox.

Visitors of the Show House will also be able to shop a selection of curated items including antiques, fine art, home furnishings, and vintage designer clothing at the fifth annual Kips Bay Show House Shop, located in the cellar of the Arthur Sachs Mansion. The house will be open to the public seven days a week through June 11th.

Kips Bay Decorator Show House
Each year, celebrated interior designers transform a luxury Manhattan home into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art, and technology. This event began in 1973 when several dedicated supporters of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club launched the 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.

The Show House receives as many as 15,000 guests annually from across the nation. Since its inception, the Show House has raised over $19 million for the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club.
