Kips Bay is back! The renowned decorator show house returns in fine form this year for its fourth annual installment in Dallas. Taking place in Old Preston Hollow’s Sunnybrook Estates neighborhood, this year’s show house features the stunning work of 22 designers—10 of them North Texas’ own. It’s chaired by local design darlings Jean Liu and Chad Dorsey, with Laura Lee Clark and Trish Sheats serving as vice chairs and Jan Showers as an honorary chair, alongside Jamie Drake and Veranda editor-in-chief Steele Marcoux.

It’s not hyperbole to say that the highly anticipated event is like the Super Bowl for design lovers. Its origins date back to 1973, when it launched in Manhattan, where it would exclusively remain for more than four decades—launching the careers of countless designers and, in the process, raising millions of dollars for the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club. In 2017, it expanded beyond the borough to Palm Beach, Florida. Three years later, Dallas was selected as the third host city, effectively cementing Dallas’ place on the design industry map. Since then, the show house has consistently brought top industry talent and star power to Dallas—including names like Mark D. Sikes, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Ken Fulk, Alexa Hampton, and Corey Damen Jenkins—and benefitted local nonprofits Dwell with Dignity and the Crystal Charity Ball, to boot.

This year’s crop of designers were given approximately six weeks to complete their spaces within the 7,992-square-foot house located at 9446 Hathaway St. To design any room with such a tight timetable is a feat, but to create spaces this ambitious and layered—not to mention source products that usually require tremendous lead times and having tradespeople and installers complete their work in the time allotted—is nothing short of astonishing.

Click through the gallery to preview the spaces, then visit the show house through November 14. Tickets are on sale at the Kips Bay website, with VIP passes starting at $150 and beginning next Tuesday, general admission at $50.

A note: Guests are required to park at Northaven United Methodist Church at 11211 Preston Rd., where shuttles will pick up and drop off.
