$51M NYC Mansion To Be The Place For 2018 Kips Bay Decorator Show

For any home decoration company like BD Decorators, it’s a great honor to be called to decorate any popular home or to be called to display their work in a home decoration show.

For this year’s Kips Bay Decorator Show, an affluent mansion, located in the Big Apple’s Upper East Side, will act as the canvas for the decoration expo’s chosen decorators.

The mansion is located at 110 East 76th Street, NYC and is valued at $51 million. It was listed by developer Joseph Chetrit, back in 2017, one of three large and affluent townhouses on East 76th Street. All three mansions were made via combining six brownstones into a few, but large megamansions, with the price tags appropriate for their scale. The smallest is 13,000ft2, the largest is 15,000ft2, with the cheapest at $39 million. The home to be used for the Decorator Show is the most expensive of the three.

Over 20 interior designers were chosen for the event, and will decorate one of the many, many, rooms of the mansion as part of the show, which happens at May 2018.

Organized and handled by the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, the event has attracted the attention of decorators like BD Decorators, as the best and most notable of interior events in the Big Apple, with designers like Victoria Hagan and Thom Filicia having participated in the past.

This new canvas will have plenty of space for the designers to work their magic, as the 15,000ft2 home has a staggering eight bedrooms, with a master suite so big, it’s larger than most of New York’s apartments. Additionally, the mansion features 10 bathrooms, a fully-landscaped backyard with a roof terrace, and other myriad features, perfect for the decorators hoping to flex their creative muscles.

The East 76th Street townhouse continues the show’s tradition of using affluent and on-the-market townhouse as the canvas for its decorators. Back in 2017, China Institute’s former Upper East Side HQ was used as the backdrop for the show, while Extell’s Carlton House mansion and the Arthur Sachs mansion on East 66th Street were the backdrops for 2016 and 2015, respectively.

Amazing Corner Curio Cabinets On Sale At For Your Corner

Curio cabinets are generally used by people to showcase souvenirs and items such as trophies or figurines. Their structure is similar to that of a regular cabinet, except that in this case, they are covered by glass sides with a wooden framework to increase visibility into the items being stored. Since they are covered on all sides, this serves as an amazing way to keep the dust and bugs off the treasured items. Most curio cabinets also have a locking mechanism to further safeguard the items inside. Generally curio cabinets take up a large amount of space. However, for customers who are constrained on space and have corners in their house with free space, these corner curio cabinets from For Your Corner serve as spectacular furniture items. Here are two corner curio cabinets on sale from this corner furniture and accessories company:

  • Acme Martha Corner Cabinet: This piece of furniture is for those families that do not have children of young ages. This is because it is a rather delicate piece of furniture, but what it lacks in sturdiness, it makes up for in terms of its beauty. It is a tall curio with an overall footprint of about 15 inches by 15 inches. This might be a little small for larger rooms but is perfect for small rooms and tight corners. This unit also comes with six shelves, giving customers ample space to place their belongings. The price for this item is quite low for its advantages so most customers are generally happy with this buy.
  • Chintaly Corner Curio Cabinets with Mirror interiors: This is a much larger piece than the one reviewed above as it has a footprint of roughly 30 inches by 21 inches. Although this might seem quite large, for an empty corner this would fit perfectly. The door of this curio has a magnetic latch to keep it in place and to ensure that the door doesn’t open by itself. The specialty of this particular piece is its mirror interiors. It is recommended for customers to place colorful items inside this cabinet as the mirrors tend to amplify the range of colors. These advantages come at a rather hefty price though, as this curio costs nearly $1000.
