Show-Stopping Show House

The holidays are the most wonderful time of the year, and designing for the Holiday House Showhouse was one of the most wonderful opportunities! I had just launched my eponymous Robin Baron Collection of home furnishings, offering hardware, casegoods, upholstery and rugs I’d designed over many months and years. Here, for the first time, I saw it all come together in one cohesive, fabulous look. This showhouse event, located in the famed Academy Mansion in NYC, invited the public to experience the talent of prestigious interior designers while benefiting important breast cancer research. I was honored to be selected as one of the designers, with the task of transforming the Grand Salon and the small-but-intriguing ante-foyer approaching the salon.

I started by looking at my new collection: what pieces held the most opportunity for high drama? What would wow guests touring the home and leave them wanting more? The result was a feast for the eyes. To see my pieces all together, creating impact in those two extraordinary spaces, was such a thrill, as was working alongside my peers and colleagues while giving back to an important cause.


Our homes are a reflection of who we are…they also help us become who we want to be.

Place objects that inspire and uplift you in key locations throughout your home. Also...a little Feng Shui goes a long way!
