”Inspired Designs: A Show House Celebrating Extraordinary Women” features over 8,000 sq ft of elegantly appointed rooms by many of today’s top designers in the newly constructed residential condominium at 535 West End Avenue in New York.

“Inspired Designs” will benefit he Breast Cancer Research Foundation founded by Evelyn H. Lauder. The show house is designed as a tribute to iconic women from the worlds of fashion, style, culture and the arts--women who have inspired the designers with their extraordinary sensibilities and achievements.

Among the designers participating in “Inspired Designs” are Aman & Carson, Bradley Stephens, Cullman & Kravis, David Scott Interiors, Greg Lanza Design, Healing Barsanti, Inson Dubois Wood, Jennifer Flanders, John Barman, Nancy Corzine, Patricia Fisher, Pat Kreisler, Patrik Lonn, Rinfret Interiors, and S. Russell Groves. The show house will also feature an art gallery by Jayne H. Baum.

Among the many “muses” are iconic women from all worlds - Marella Agnelli, Ingrid Bergman, Coco Chanel, Michele Oka Doner, Dorothy Draper, Eve Ensler, Peggy Guggenheim, Angelina Jolie, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Emily Fisher Landau, Evelyn Lauder, Annie Lennox, Michelle Obama and Margaret Thatcher.

This year is also the anniversary of BCRF’s first show house held ten years ago this month. That show house was a great success in raising awareness and funds for the organization’s core mission—finding a cure for breast cancer through innovative research at leading medical centers worldwide.

The “Inspired Designs” Show House will be open daily from 12:30-6:30 from now through Friday, December 4. It is closed Mondays and Thanksgiving. Admission to the show house is a $25.00 contribution to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
