A Kips Bay Retrospective


Kips Bay Retrospective 1994

Charlotte’s first Kips Bay Showhouse was in 1994; a small, seductive space.  Here she used a sepia toile from Travers all around the room (which actually wasn’t a room at all, but a passageway she fashioned into a room!) where she created a tented bed and decorated the landing with treillage walls, pedestals and urns.

Charlotte’s next room in 1995 was the famous umbrella bed inspired by Mona Bismarck and made for the Show House by Tony Victoria & Sons.
