Inside Kips Bay, New York

46th Annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House in New York has just come to a close. This year, Philip Mitchell created an impressive, art-filled drawing room featuring a pair of George Smith Christopher Chairs. The space is inspired by the natural curation that occurs when creating a family home and evokes a lived-in, luxury feel. The drawing room illustrates that a home should be a place of personal expression, comfort and togetherness.

About Philip Mitchell

Philip Mitchell established Philip Mitchell Design in 2002, having previously worked for two of Canada’s largest interior design firms, and has established an international presence as a collaborator with a passion for architecture and a love for curated spaces. Philip’s approach is modern yet understated, with a relaxed “people-ready” ambiance, refined colour palette, urbane aesthetic and distinctive, casually elegant style.

The room also includes subtle nods to his own life, such as the custom cushions on the dog bed with the names of his adorable dogs, Jacob and Wylo, embroidered on. Photograph Credit Annie Schlechter. 

About Kips Bay

Each year, celebrated interior designers transform a luxury Manhattan home into an elegant exhibition of fine furnishings, art and technology. This all began in 1973 when several dedicated supporters of the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club launched the Kips Bay Decorator Show House to raise critical funds for much needed after school and enrichment programs for New York City children. Over the course of four decades, this project has grown into a must-see event for thousands of design enthusiasts and is renowned for sparking interior design trends throughout the world.
