Showhouses are always about style and possibility, and New York’s Holiday House is among the most imaginative. Next month, the seventh edition of Holiday House will be at the Academy Mansion, where 20 seasoned designers will transform the space inspired by various holidays, and present glammed-up takes on everything from Valentine’s Day to Flag Day. Sponsored by Traditional Home, the event draws prestigious members of the design and philanthropic communities, as the industry supports the charity benefiting The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Leonard Lauder will serve as honorary chair, Iris Dankner and Christopher Hyland as co-chairs, and interior designers Alexa Hampton, Thom Filicia, Geoffrey Bradfield and Mario Buatta as design chairs.
