KIPS BAY HOUSE 2014: Living in the Lap of Luxury

reporter: Miguel Dominguez


On May 21st at the 2014 Kips Bay Decorator Show House taking place at the Mansion on Madison, Consentino Silestone  had a promo reception, where Silestone was featured in the countertop and sinks of the island in the beautiful kitchen.


Each year, celebrated interior designers transform a luxury Manhattan home into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art and technology. It started in 1973 when supporters of the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club launched the Kips Bay Decorator Show House to raise funds for after school and to enrich and enhance the quality of life for young people by providing educational and developmental programs, with special emphasis on youngsters between ages 6 - 18 who come from disadvantaged or disenfranchised circumstances.
