The legendary Kips Bay Decorator Show House, founded in 1973 as a fundraiser to benefi t Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club in New York, each year draws dozens of celebrated designers and architects to transform a townhouse on Manhattan's Upper East Side. For 47 years, the deans of decorating have all participated: Sister Parish, Albert Hadley, Mark Hampton, McMillen Inc., David Easton, Irvine & Fleming, and Mario Buatta. The Manhattan show house attracts about 15,000 visitors each May (this year's Kips Bay NYC was postponed due to COVID-19). It's been so successful that three years ago, Kips Bay added an annual Palm Beach show house. And now Dallas.

The Dallas show house benefi ts Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club in New York City; Dwell with Dignity, a Dallas nonprofi t that creates soothing, inspiring homes for families struggling with homelessness and poverty; and The Crystal Charity Ball, which supports and makes contributions to children's charities in Dallas County.
