2019 Kips Bay Decorator Show HouseMarch 20, 2019
The Kips Bay Decorator Show House has announced the 23 designers and architects that will transform a spacious townhouse on Manhattan’s Upper East Side over the next seven weeks.
The showhouse, now in its 47th year, attracts 15,000 visitors annually, and all proceeds benefit the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, which offers innovative after-school and enrichment programs to 10,000 youths—ages 6 through 18—throughout the Bronx. The esteemed organization has raised over $24 million to date. Each year the showhouse taps top interior designers and architects to completely reimagine a house in New York, a task that continually produces some of the most memorable moments in American interior design.
“This year, we have an exciting mix of veteran Kips Bay participants and first timers, which always leads to a dramatic and stunning transformation,” Bunny Williams, Kips Bay President’s Dinner Chair and celebrated interior designer, said in a statement. “Each year, we are so appreciative that these designers dedicate their precious hours and energy to a cause that is so important to the community.”
The Kips Bay Decorator Show House, which will be held at 36–38 East 74th Street, will be open to the public seven days a week from May 2 to May 31.

There’s no better company to be in than the interior designer roster for the Kips Bay Decorator Show House. After previewing the $30 million Upper East Side residence earlier this month, the organization announced today the talents who will begin transforming the 12,425-square-foot property in the coming weeks. “We’re looking forward to seeing the unique visions of this powerhouse team come to life,” says showhouse co-chair Jamie Drake.
The showhouse, now in its 47th year, has raised more than $24 million for the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club to date, garnering around 15,000 annual visitors. “Beyond the visibility and name recognition that participation in the Kips Bay Decorator Show House entails, they should know that because of their dedication and talent, we will continue to surpass our fundraising goals, which are so crucial to enhancing after-school and enrichment programs for our city’s youth,” says co-chair Alexa Hampton.
