The Kips Bay Decorator Show House has revealed its 2014 location and selected the designers who will transform New York’s iconic Mansion on Madison, once the North Wing of historic Villard House, adjacent to the luxury hotel New York Palace. Over the course of the annual 8-week celebration hosted by the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club, this space will be transformed by the likes of Christopher Peacock, Mark Hampton, Tony Ingrao and Mendelson Group.
“Stepping inside the historic mansion and its grand rooms immediately transforms you to another era," says Bunny Williams, Show House Chair and celebrated interior designer. "With the help of these hand-selected twenty-two designers and architects, we’re looking forward to reviving one of Manhattan’s most-revered historic spaces while simultaneously raising funds to further enhance the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club and our region’s youth.”
More than 20,000 people are expected to tour the space when it is completed. The Show House, which serves as the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club premier fundraiser, will be open every day between May 1-29.
