Sixteen leading design firms from across the country have transformed a 5,000 sf Key West-style house for the 37th annual American Red Cross Designers' Showhouse sponsored by Traditional Home. Located at 123 Santa Lucia Ave. in West Palm Beach, the house will be open Jan. 24 – February 23.
Bill Kopp of Smith Interior Design Group is general chairman for the event, Stephen Mooney is design chairman, and Susan Angert and Frank Maguire are boutique co-chairs.
“Once again, the show house space and our team of incredible designers promise a fantastic showcase of both local and national talent, plus interior and exterior decor that will transport guests through an ‘island living’ experience,” said Kopp. “Our designers and volunteers donate a tremendous amount of their time and energy to support their local American Red Cross and we are looking forward to an exciting event.”
