For the second year, Sotheby’s is pleased to present the Designer Showhouse from April 11-19th. The event, which is sponsored by Sotheby’s International Realty, Inc., will feature thirteen interior designers and design firms who will each curate a room on the fifth floor exhibition space of the Manhattan headquarters. The objects, around 300 in all, come from myriad Sotheby’s departments – American Paintings, Silver, Photography, English Furniture, Carpets, 20th-century Design and more. The show will culminate with a dedicated auction on April 20th. Each space, ranging from a bedroom and living room, to a dining room and library will evoke the designer’s unique aesthetic.
See below for a sneak peek at some of the participating designers and photographs of their recent projects. Their completed designs will be unveiled at Sotheby’s on April 11th.
“We love mixing traditional art in a modern setting or hanging a contemporary painting over a beautiful 18th-century chest,” Elisa Cullman of Cullman & Kravis.
“I really love dining rooms,” says Russell Piccione, who believes that a home is not complete without “a space for the celebration of domestic rituals.”
“The library as an independent space in the home remains very much in vogue in high-end residential design,” says Juan Carretero of New York firm Capital C Interiors.
“They want to live with what they love, but comfortably,” says the New York-based Eric Cohler of the couple he envisions inhabiting the Sotheby’s Showhouse.
Sotheby’s Designer Showhouse is open to the public Saturday, April 11th through Sunday, April 19th on the fifth floor exhibition space of the Manhattan headquarters located at 1334 York Avenue.
