The summer showcase for America’s premier design talent, The Hampton Designer Showhouse, will return with a special edition this summer. Now in its 17th year, The Hampton Designer Showhouse will feature over 30 top interior designers and decorative artists from the Hamptons, New York City and nationwide at two – that’s right two – showhouses in Southampton.
“The opportunity of doing two homes for the 2017 Hampton Designer Showhouse presented itself and we found it to be very exciting!” said Tony Manning, President of Hampton Designer Showhouse Foundation Inc. “It’s something we have not done before and we thought it would be fun and interesting for visitors of the Showhouse.”
The Showhouse will debut with a Gala Preview Cocktail Party on Saturday, July 22, and will run until Labor Day (Monday, September 4). Proceeds from the Showhouse will benefit Southampton Hospital.
“Our participating designers are working hard and we cannot wait for the Showhouse to open this summer,” Manning added. “And, of course, with two houses, we have more designers and more for people to see!” This year’s Showhouse will take place at a duo of Hamptons homes that were generously donated by Paramount Custom Homes, and the Showhouse Boutiques will be provided by Deluxe.
