Celebrating the 44th annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House, emcee Simon Doonan, along with James Druckman, Martha Stewart, Aerin Lauder, Margaret Russell, Bunny Williams, Thom Filicia, Jamie Drake and Jonathan Adler, convened at Cipriani 42nd Street earlier this week. Attendees helped raise a record-breaking $1 million-plus at the sold-out gala to benefit the organization and its programs. They also enjoyed a special performance by members of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club.

The gala recognized Kohler Co., the American manufacturing company, which was founded in 1873 and is best known for its plumbing products, in addition to furniture, cabinetry, tile, engines, and generators. CEO David Kohler was on hand to accept the award.
