Twenty-two of the United States most celebrated interior designers and architects will participate in this year’s 42nd Annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House hosted by New York’s most prominent youth organization, the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club. In a span of just eight weeks, each designer will transform a distinct space of Manhattan’s iconic Villard Mansion at 457 Madison Avenue, The Mansion on Madison.
Hand-selected by the Kips Bay Decorator Show House Committee, this year’s designers will revive the historic interiors of the famed building, which was originally the north wing of the famous Villard House. Today, The Mansion on Madison sits adjacent to luxury hotel, The New York Palace, and is connected by a grand courtyard. Together, the Kips Bay Decorator Show House will offer visitors to the hotel unique packages and limited edition offerings throughout the month of May.
