Considered by many to be the premier showcase of professional interior design, the Kips Bay Decorator Show House has grown from a fund raiser for a local Boys & Girls Club to a must-see event for industry professionals and thousands of design enthusiasts. Renowned for launching interior design trends throughout the world since 1973, this much-anticipated spring event is dedicated to challenging its participants and inspiring every visitor.
With over $15,000,000 raised since its inception, all Show House profits go directly to the 13,000 members of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club. Located in the Southeast Bronx with ten satellite locations, the Club provides essential after school enrichment programs for disadvantaged children. for more information about the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club.
