I n the 43rd annual edition of the Kips Bay Show House, New York, NY, the benefit organization, the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, celebrates 100 years of service.

This year’s twenty-two designers where selected by a committee chaired by celebrated interior designer Bunny Williams.  The 2015 class of designers transformed the Arthur Sachs mansion at 58 East 66th street, New York,  NY, into a five-floor show piece featuring a range of design styles with a heavy traditional, new traditional, and transitional style.

Since 1915, Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club has focused on improving and enhancing the lives of New York City’s children who are economically, socially or recreationally disadvantaged through more than 11,000 programs.

The show house, closing June 11, is trafficked by approximately 15,000 people each year and the event has raised more than $19 million dollars since its inception 43 years ago.

Click on each designer below to enjoy our in-depth visual tour of this year’s mansion.  My apologizes to Greener by Design, Michael Herold Design, and Thom Filicia for missing their rooms.  We will try in the future to catch your work!
