Holiday House NYC 2022: discover all the rooms of the designer’s show house

In the New York design world, a long-established barometer for welcoming the impending holidays and end-of-year celebrations is Holiday House NYC, an elegant event where show home design meets fundraising for the breast cancer research.

The venture is the brainchild of founder and creative director Iris Dankner, an interior designer and breast cancer survivor who started the program in 2008, along with design chairs Amy Lau and Thom Filicia. This year, the participating design talents — 18 of them, to be exact — imaginatively produced a penthouse-level presentation on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

“It’s great to be back!” says Dankner, of the show’s in-person return after two virtual editions. “People are so excited to come out and be together. Being here tonight is beyond anything I dreamed of. Open to the public until December 11, Holiday House NYC includes two penthouses at The Kent on 95th Street. While the sleek interiors and impressive views are well worth the trip, here’s a look at our favorite moments at Holiday House NYC 2022.

In the large living room, Susan Glick Interiors accentuates the spacious footprint with round, voluptuous shapes to create a soft, minimalist essence. Among them is a curved sofa by Thayer Coggin, as well as a porcelain ring light fixture by Ted Bradley Studio that visually enhances the room with sculptural interest.

Taking a grayscale approach to the lobby, Katie Brandt Interiors channels a cool downtown vibe with a dramatic John Lyle carved metal mirror and edgy grasscloth wallcovering. “I was inspired by the incredible views of the Hudson River and the beautiful city skyline. We don’t have that in Minnesota,” says Brandt.
