Unveiling the Kips Bay Show House
The Kips Bay Show House is a melting pot of artistic innovation and inspiration. This year, the event concluded on June 6, leaving a lasting impression on all who enjoyed its captivating displays. Visionary designers and architects showcased their talents, creating awe-inspiring interiors that pushed boundaries and redefined luxury living.
Warmth, Wilderness, and Wonder
Among the 22 talented participants at the Kips Bay Show House, imaginative NYC designer Lillian Wu stood out with her warm and woodsy design. In a recent interview with VERANDA, Wu said, “In the hospitality world, we refer to the service pantry as ‘the heart of the home,’ the blood-pumping machine that gives the house life.”
Inspired by nature, Wu used tropical wallpapers, soft lighting, and warm-toned Rocky Mountain Hardware accents to enhance these remarkable spaces. “The large, beautiful leaves and dreamy forest theme dictated some of the palette and color choices for the cabinetry, as well as artwork selections,” she noted.

At Rocky Mountain Hardware, we understand true luxury lies in the seamless union of form and function. Our collection of meticulously crafted bronze hardware pieces exemplifies this philosophy.
