Kips Bay Showhouse New York, NY

JCS Construction Group and Lynne Scalo Designs teamed to volunteer to work wizardry on a room in houses donated for the purpose, at the 40th annual edition of the Kips Bay Decorator Show House who all to benefit the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club.

For most of its history the Kips Bay Decorator Show House has been staged in one or another Manhattan brownstone or town house. But this year there were no town houses to be found. And so the developer of the Aldyn, a 40-story condominium building at the south end of the former Trump development above the old Penn Central rail yards, offered the charity the use of two adjacent unsold duplexes, each more than 6,000 square feet (priced at $15.9 million and $16.9 million) and each equally unpromising in architectural terms.
