This is the 35th year for the Kips Bay Decorator Show House in New York, which benefits the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club in New York. The buzz word this year appears to be SHINY. There is patent leather, vinyl, and even aluminum foil everywhere. There are even two Arne Jacobsen Egg chairs covered in silver leather.
This show house is always held in a 1904 Beaux Art mansion on the Upper East Side. Decorators for the 2007 house include some notables, including Mariette Himes Gomez and Jamie Drake. Here are some photos from the New York Times.
