Kips Bay Showhouse – Part 2 – LADIES NIGHT
A former parking garage fashioned into a five-story, $49.5 million limestone townhouse opened its doors to an A-list crowd of design aficionados. At the 44th annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House, 21 top tier design firms have transformed the raw concrete spaces of the new-construction luxury home into a wonderful museum of design drama, stylish suites and outdoor opulence.
Our first story (here) focused on spaces designed by the talented men of this year’s extraordinary showhouse. Now we take note of the female point of view. It seems today’s designing woman is classically chic and sensationally symmetrical.
Suzanne Kasler’s family room is a cool backdrop for her furniture designs for Hickory Chair.
Victoria Hagan describes her aesthetic as Classic American. “I design for the way modern families live,” she says. Whether it’s a modern or more traditional project, she is always influenced by an intelligent integration of architecture and interior design.
Her design philosophy features a refined use of materials, sophisticated color, and strong silhouettes. Victoria has designed an extensive range of versatile projects throughout the country, from the most elegant urban residences to casual weekend retreats, along with noted residential developments, hotels and resorts and corporate interiors. Victoria Hagan Home, the designer’s Furniture, Fabric, and Rug collections, are available to the Trade through design showrooms throughout the country.
