The Kips Bay Decorator Show House dates back to 1973, when several dedicated supporters of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club launched the Kips Bay Decorator Show House in Manhattan to raise critical funds for much-needed after school and enrichment programs for New York City children.
Each year since its inception, celebrated interior designers transform a magnificent estate into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art and technology. For more than four decades, the show house has been a must-see event for thousands of design enthusiasts, renowned for sparking interior design trends throughout the world. In 2017, the show house expanded with a second location in Palm Beach, in partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County. The second annual Palm Beach show house will open on January 26, 2019.
