The inaugural Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas opens to the public on Friday, September 25th at 5828 Woodland Drive in Old Preston Hollow’s Historic Woodland Estates neighborhood. The house showcases the creativity and design expertise of twenty-seven of the nation’s most acclaimed interior designers, architects, and artists. Each designer was given approximately seven weeks to transform their assigned space in the home. In-person tickets can be purchased for Friday, September 25th – Sunday, October 25th, 2020, Monday – Sunday: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. Cost is $40 and tickets must be purchased online before you enter the Show House.  For the next month, design lovers from around the nation, visitors, and locals will have the opportunity to tour the completed Show House.  For the first time ever, the Show House will offer a 3D virtual video tour for those who are not able to attend in person.

The Show House, which is also held annually in New York City and Palm Beach, doubles as the nation’s leading design event of the year and Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club’s top fundraiser. For nearly half a century, top interior designers have come together in raising more than $25 million for the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club of New York, which provides young people with educational and developmental programs in the city. The Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas will also benefit local charity Dwell with Dignity, a nonprofit agency dedicated to creating soothing, inspiring homes for families struggling with homelessness and poverty, and The Crystal Charity Ball, another Dallas-based organization whose mission is to aid, support and make contributions to children's charities in Dallas County.
