Twenty-one of the nation’s most celebrated interior designers and architects will travel across the country to participate in this year’s 44th Annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House, hosted by New York’s premiere local youth organization, the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club. Each designer will spend the next eight weeks transforming a distinct space in The Carlton House Townhouse at 19 East 61st Street in New York City’s iconic Lenox Hill neighborhood.
The Carlton House Townhouse sits adjacent to The Carlton House, a newly transformed luxury building originally designed as a hotel in 1940 by Kenneth B. Norton. In 2013, Extell Development, along with architect Beyer Blinder Belle, began converting The Carlton House into a 68-unit tower, adding two extra stories to the original structure and a townhouse next door. The Townhouse, which has a separate private entrance along East 61st Street, is currently a raw space that potential homeowners will be able to customize to their specifications.
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 Thursday, May 12th. Directions for designers interested in applying for the 2016 Kips Bay Decorator Show House can be found on their website.
“Last year marked a major milestone for the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, as we celebrated our 100th year of service and one of the most successful Show Houses to date,” 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 continuing this momentum at the Carlton House Townhouse, an ideal backdrop to not only showcase the talent of top interior designers, but to also raise critical funds to keep the Club thriving for many years to come.”
Proceeds from the Decorator Show House, which attracts 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.
