Kips Bay Decorator Show House Fundraiser Opens in a Neo-Georgian Mansion

In its forty-fifth year, the internationally-recognized Kips Bay Decorator Show House, hosted by New York’s premier youth organization, the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, will be located at 125 East 65th Street in New York City’s iconic Lenox Hill neighborhood.   
“We are thrilled to announce that the 2017 Kips Bay Decorator Show House will take place at 125 East 65th Street, an inspiring canvas to celebrate the Show House’s remarkable forty-fifth year,” said Show House Chair and celebrated interior designer Bunny Williams. “The flexible floor plan will be the perfect palette for this year’s designers. We look forward to another successful Show House season, to raise critical funds for New York City’s youth.”
The four-story, neo-Georgian style red brick home boasts charming views of townhouse gardens and nearby architectural cathedrals. Built in 1905, the grand residence was designed by world-renowned artist and architect, Charles A. Platt as a private home. The estate features original detailing including the paneling, fireplace mantel, painted beam ceiling and herringbone floor. This spring, the sought-after home will invite twenty of the world’s leading interior designers to decorate individual rooms before opening to the exhibit public.
The Show House, recognized as the nation’s most highly anticipated design event of the year and the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club’s leading fundraiser, will be open to the public for one month beginning on May 2nd.  
“Each year, the Kips Bay Decorator Show House proves to be an unparalleled display of incredible interior design talent, raising critical funds for New York City children through the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club,” said James Druckman, President and CEO of the New York Design Center, and President of the Board of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club. “We are looking forward to opening this year’s show house, welcoming consumers and designers alike.”
Proceeds from the Decorator Show House, which attract an estimated 15,000 visitors each year, benefit the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club which offers innovative after-school and enrichment programs for more than 10,000 youth, ages 6 through 18, in ten locations throughout the Bronx. The esteemed organization has raised over $20 million to date.
