As I mentioned in my last post, this was one of the most memorable weekends I’ve had. We went full-out for three days and one of the highlights was the Kips Bay Showhouse.
My favorite Room was the Dining Room:
Design by Kristen McGinnis Design Inc.
This photo cannot relate the how beautiful this room was, the amount of work that went into the space was apparent just by the finish on the blue lacquer walls, the faux finish over the gold leaf on the ceiling was done by Maya Romanoff. OMG! it was exquisite, and the lighting over the table… This branch with LED lighting was magnificent (again I’d like to point out the finish on the walls, just amazing!).
The art: Al Held Thalocropolis 1966 Acrylic on Canvas 84 x 72 inches, (also in this room but not pictured, Al Held Acracropolis 1966, acrylic on canvas, 84 x 72).
The buffet in the dining room, this piece was sensational, it truly was another piece of art in this room…
Buffet is by Vincent DuBourg – Bronze Double buffet Nouvelle Zeland 2011 Collection of Chum Langhome
This bench over looked the two-story atrium, you can see Denise Maurer peaking through the railing on the lower level!! The bench was made by Wendell Castle, an American furniture artist and a leading figure in American craft. He is often credited with being the father of the art furniture movement. Kristen told me this bench was made by him at 84 years of age. Again this at every turn of the head this room was astonishing!

This was another great use of a small space, the Sitting Room: ceiling mural by I-Faux-Professional Decorative Finishes Andrei Chichkine, Inc., the Drapery and sofa fabric by Jerry Pair/Dedar.
The 4th Floor Landing was so beautiful, I would love to have the art work! Art By Modern Aquatics Series: Central Park #1, 2 & 3 Richard Bettinger Studios
Now there were so many great rooms, I could on and on seriously! This Bath blew me away!! Toward the end of our time at Kips Bay, Denise Maurer and I made a stop in the kitchen to sip the Champagne!
