On Saturday, May 26, 2018 ARF kicked off the summer season with its annual Designer Show House at the ARF Thrift Shop in Sagaponack, chaired by Gordon H. Hoppe, Alex Papachristidis and Marshall Watson. The shop was transformed into eight rooms and one outdoor space styled by some of New York’s most illustrious interior decorators.

This is always one of KDHamptons favorite events of the summer season and our favorite designers really knocked it out of the park this year with beautifully curated rooms.  Always a fun night, check out the party pix from the event below.

Each room incorporated ARF Thrift Shop items as well as pieces donated from the designers own collections and vendors. Guests sipped cocktails and perused the specially designed rooms, which ranged from a “Beach Glam Retreat” to a “Study by the Sea.” Guests enjoyed wine donated by Kontokosta Winery, and hors d’oeuvres by the Seafood Shop as they mingled and shopped among the themed rooms.
