Interior Designer Bunny Williams Talks Kips Bay Decorator Show House History.

“I attended the very first Kips Bay Decorator Show House as a ‘wanna-be’ decorator,” says renowned interior designer and Kips Bay President’s Dinner Chair Bunny Williams. She got involved helping out with the show house and the President’s Dinner about 10 years ago, and Williams participated in her first one as a designer in 1982.
