One More Week to Deck the Halls for a Good Cause

Friday, December 30, 2016

It’s the final week to catch the Holiday House New York Design Show, which is open through January 8, 2017. This year, the House is located in the luxury Sullivan Mansions in the heat of SoHo.

Holiday House Design Show was founded seven years ago by Iris Dankner to increase breast cancer awareness in the design industry. Dankner survived breast cancer 18 years ago, and she has made it her mission to raise funds for breast cancer research and women who need help fighting this disease. For Holiday House shows, all designers’ rooms are inspired by holidays or days that have personal meaning to them. Ultimately, Holiday House is about the celebration of life, each day treated with the same reverence as a holiday.

Holiday House was the first designer showhouse held in New York City to benefit a breast cancer organization. Recruiting top interior designers in the New York City area, the showhouse was initially held in a historic mansion on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Since its inception, Holiday House has featured the top interior designers in the industry, received critical acclaim, been endorsed by some of the most celebrated global luxury brands, and expanded to a summer showhouse in the Hamptons. Holiday House has partnered with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and all proceeds are donated to help the quest to end breast cancer forever.

This year’s house is located at 40 & 50 Sullivan Street, between Spring Street and Broome Street. Featured designers include Campion Platt, Dineen Architecture + Design, Gilt Home, Judy Ross Textiles, Meredith Ostrom, Patrick Mele Sedition Gallery and Unlimted Earth Care.
