NEW YORK – On 11 April, Sotheby’s welcomed a capacity crowd to the Designer Showhouse opening celebration, hosted with Architectural Digest. From the Library to the Master Suite, the twelve Showhouse rooms (plus pantry bar) were packed with guests there to admire the dynamic interiors created by this year’s talented participants. The designers were on hand to chat about their rooms and the art, furniture and other treasures they chose from Sotheby’s to outfit their spaces (many of the objects will be offered in a Sotheby’s auction on 17 April).
