T h e K i p s B a y D e c o r a t o r S h o w H o u s e Dallas returns F a l l 2 0 2 1 , following a very successful 2020 run. The Dallas show house co- chairmen have been asked to return for an encore: The 2021 co-chairs are Jan Showers, Chad Dorsey and Jean Liu; vice-chairs Laura Lee Falconer and Trish Sheats; and Jamie Drake and Veranda editor in chief Steele Marcoux as honorary chairs. Opening night reception is Thursday, September 23, and the show house opens to the public Friday, September 24, through October 24, benefiting Kips Bay Boys & Girls Clubs, NYC, along with Dallas' Crystal KIPS BAY DECORATOR SHOW HOUSE DALLAS RETURNS FOR YEAR TWO BLOSSOM COLLECTION Charity Ball and Dwell with Dignity. National designers as well as Dallas designers will be selected via committee to participate in Kips Bay Show House. Veranda magazine takes the lead as national media sponsor, with PaperCity and D Home serving as local media sponsors. Kips Bay Decorator Show House, founded in 1973 as a fundraiser to benefit Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club in New York, each year draws dozens of the most celebrated designers and architects to transform a townhouse on Manhattan's Upper East Side and has raised more than $25 million for the organization. It's been so successful that three years ago, Kips Bay added a Palm Beach show house, and Dallas was added in 2020. M aximalist artist Hunt Slonem's riotous canvases of flora, fauna (especially avians, butterflies, and bunnies) are collected by venerable museums including the Metropolitan, Guggenheim, and Whitney. Now the painter has a new jam. No stranger to collaboration and cross-pollination into other realms and media (such as the world of design, via fabric, wallpaper, and carpet collections), Slonem used the lockdown to develop a new body of work from his New York studio. Then, he headed to Seattle to enter the high kingdom of craft, working with heritage artisan fabricator Glass Eye Studio, founded 1978, on … blown-glass bunnies. Available in limited editions, these charming life-size lapins come in confectionary colors that the artist likens to the palette of jelly beans. Collect singly, or acquire a herd for your hutch. Edition works $5,500, unique sculptures $8,500, through Laura Rathe Fine Art, Catherine D.
