The highly anticipated design event has claimed the historic River Mansion at 337 Riverside Drive at W 106th Street in the Upper West Side as its location. The Show House will be open to the public for one month beginning Thursday, May 11th, 2023. An iconic building on the Upper West Side, the home is also known as “The River Mansion” as the oversized home sits on a corner high point beside Riverside Park with enchanting Hudson River views. With a colorful history beginning in 1902, the building has been home to several notable residents including actress Julia Marlowe, and the Bronfman family including Edgar, Sherry B. and Hannah Bronfman.
Each year celebrated interior designers transform a luxury Manhattan home into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art, and technology. This event began in 1973 when several dedicated supporters of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club launched the Decorator Show House to raise critical funds for much needed after school and enrichment programs for New York City children. Over the course of four decades, this project has grown into a must-see event for thousands of design enthusiasts and is renowned for sparking interior design trends throughout the world.
The Kips Bay Decorator Show House New York will be on view from May 11 to June 6, 2023 located at 337 Riverside Drive at 106th Street. The House is open on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm and on Tuesday and Thursday from 10am to 8pm.
We can’t close without a mention of another famous mansion just one-block away ~ The Schinasi Mansion located at 351 Riverside Drive, privately owned & not open to the public, is the last remaining detached single-family home in Manhattan.
