The exposition of Kips Bay Decorator Show House differs from the usual European understanding of the “furniture exhibition”. It lasts almost a month, and instead of the usual review of the achievements of individual furniture factories, it presents fully furnished spaces from 22 respected decorators. For their interior solutions, a white-stone mansion in Manhattan was given – 890 square meters of inspiration. This format allows not only to find a new item, but also to peep “ready-made solutions”. You can see everything here, from the gallery wall surrounding the well of the spiral staircase to spectacular canopy beds and pop art bathrooms.

Dining room Up in the Villa. Project author Mark D. Sykes (Mark D. Sikes)
“This room on the Upper East Side reflects my idea of ​​an Italian villa,” says designer Mark D. Sykes. It was inspired by the Italian socialite Marella Agnelli, while the walls are inspired by architect and designer Renzo Mongiardino. Describing his creation, Mark says that the main feature of this room is casual elegance. “I would say that this is a multifunctional space under the motto “California conquers bedroom communities”,” explains the designer. Rattan furniture creates an informal atmosphere for a midday lunch here. Numerous potted flowers – garden roses, dahlias, ferns and geraniums – add freshness to the composition.

But the main decoration of the room is still an intricate combination of red and white patterns: checks, stripes and paisley cucumbers. It is safe to say that in this way the designer said goodbye to his favorite white and blue palette.

Terrace A Garden Grove. Author Janice Parker project (Janice Parker Landscape Architects
Landscape designer Janice Parker designed a cozy terrace paved with blue limestone tiles.

In terracotta vases Seibert & Rice planted fern and Spanish bearded moss.

Roof terrace ToitTerrace. Project author Lauren Rottet (Rottet Studio)
When designing the rooftop deck, designer Lauren Rottet had the things she loves the most in mind. “I love being outdoors, looking at the rooftops of Manhattan and reflecting on the history of the houses. They are all different, but for many years they get along next to each other,” she says. In the design of the terrace, a wall with butterflies lined with mosaics immediately catches the eye. Sicis, ─ a spectacular contrast with the brick facades of the Lenox Hill quarter. The perimeter of the living area is marked with potted plants.

Designer Alessandra Branca (Alessandra Branca) has created a spectacular mix of floral and graphic ornaments against the backdrop of walls sheathed in striped pink fabric.

lounge Midnight Manhattan. Project author Pavarini design
This lounge area (living room, bar and dressing room) is surrounded by walls of rich shades of blue and turquoise with a chameleon effect. A unique coating was created as follows: first, a dark blue base was applied to the walls, and then covered with a glossy varnish using the “strie glazing» ─ the result is a surface with small grooves that reflect and refract light. The fireplace wall is clad in tin-plated travertine tiles, while the hearth is covered by a sculpted steel screen from John Lyle design.

The bespoke espresso-hued hanging cabinets we saw in the lounge area reappear in the nook near the bar. In this part of the lounge, the theme of the looking glass is played up: artistic panels with blue-lilac waves are reflected in a large mirror made up of several geometric pieces. To the right of it hangs a decorative convex mirror. Oledlit in an illuminated frame. A glossy dark blue PVC ceiling completes the composition. The floor is tiled in greyish white with the color and texture of pebbled leather.

Secluded bar next to the dining room. Designed by Tilton Fenwick (Tilton fenwick)
This unusual room by the stairs was conceived as a place for a small group of people who, after dinner, want to continue an interesting conversation over cocktails. “We imagined two or three friends at the end of an official meal secluded in this place in order to keep secrets or continue a topic that may not be of interest to the rest of the invitees,” says the author of the project. To highlight the theme of escapism, a work by photographer Karen Knorr, Shakti, was hung on the wall. Looking at it, you can mentally transport yourself from the Upper East Side to the Pakistani Shish Mahal Palace, which is also called the Palace of Mirrors.

Kitchen The Lambourne Collection. Author project Christopher Peacock (Christopher Peacock)
Christopher Peacock was inspired to create his debut line of furniture in Flanders, a province of Belgium where he spent his summer holidays as a child. The dark cabinets at the heart of the collection are a modern interpretation of the classic “style”. Handles made of slightly aged brass also have quite a traditional shape. The undoubted highlight of the program is, of course, the table top with a raw edge, made to order by the company Grothouse lumber from English mountain elm.
