Kips Bay Show House Pop Up Shop

Even though the Kips Bay Show House date and location has yet to be announced, the design community is already getting excited about the important fall event. This week you can attend a big sale to help raise funds for the charity.

A Pop Up Shop benefiting Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club is open at 207 East 57th, May 20, 2010 through May 23, 2010, featuring furniture, artwork, lighting, china, silver, carpets, fabric, garden items, handbags, jewelry, and more from top designers, dealers and private donors.

You’ll find signed Schlumberger for Tiffany gold earrings, Royal Copenhagen china, Henredon nightstands, and Fortuny fabric, among other things.

The Opening Night Reception and Private Sale on May 19th from 6:00 – 9:00 pm is sponsored by One Kings Lane (tickets start at $125 — call 718.893.8600 x245 for tickets and info.)

We have become big fans of, which has been taking up all of our Saturday mornings with its online “Tastemaker Tag Sale.” Products personally selected by top designers from around the country (like Ann Getty and Suzanne Tucker in San Francisco) are put up for sale each Saturday, and tend to sell very very quickly.

Like the Kips Bay Show House, One Kings Lane is devoted to bringing us the best in design, and is a great place to get surprised and inspired.
