“The caliber of this group is truly remarkable—each designer has such an impressive portfolio of work and unique design point-of-view,” said celebrated designer and Honorary Show House Chair, Bunny Williams. “We are looking forward to how these industry leaders dial up the design of each space with beautiful trends, new ideas, and clever solutions.”

 

Villa Belmonte, a two-story 1920’s Mediterranean-style home with longstanding connections to Palm Beach will serve as the backdrop for the highly anticipated design event. The designers will each decorate individual rooms before the home is exhibited to the public.

Since 1973, the New York event has grown into a must-see attraction, sparking interior design trends throughout the world and raising more than $22 million for Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club. In its inaugural year in Florida, The Kips Bay Palm Beach Show House will benefit Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club and Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County, which offer innovative after-school and enrichment programs for youth, ages 6 through 18, in their respective areas.

 

“Each year in New York, the Kips Bay Show House brings the design community together to raise critical funds for educational and developmental programs throughout New York City,” said James Druckman, President and CEO of the New York Design Center, and President of the Board of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club. “The Palm Beach location provides an exciting new landscape for the Show House and a wonderful opportunity to partner with Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County. We are pleased to introduce South Florida to the Kips Bay experience.”
