11th Annual Holiday House NYC
On Tuesday, October 23rd, the highly acclaimed Holiday House NYC kicked off at their luxurious, new 13,000 sq. foot limestone townhouse at 118 East 76th. The Opening Night Gala offered industry insiders and distinguished guests a first glimpse at the magnificently re-imagined townhouse.
Over 20 talented design firms transformed each room of the newly-built 32-foot-wide mansion, creating extravagantly appointed spaces and innovative designs loosely inspired by “holiday” themes, such as a “Getaway in Paris,” the “Crysthanamum Festival” and the “Modern Royal.”
The show house, which opened its doors to the public on October 24 at Upper East Side on one of New York’s most beautiful blocks, was founded by 21-year veteran breast cancer survivor Iris Dankner.
“We are delighted to be honoring our dear friends and colleagues Design Chairs Thom Filicia, Carson Kressley and Vicente Wolf and our inspiring Honorary Chair Tracy Anderson. We are incredibly grateful to Richard Steinberg and Douglas Elliman for providing our gifted designers with such a marvelous canvas on which to work for the 11th edition of Holiday House NYC. Together we are building awareness about and funds for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation,” says Ms. Dankner.
“We applaud Iris and the design community’s ongoing support of our organization. The extraordinary talent on display in Holiday House and the design community’s commitment give us meaningful capacity to fuel progress,” says Myra Biblowit, President & CEO of BCRF.
Holiday House NYC donates all gala and ticket sales proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF), and has become one of the City’s leading interior design events.
