To set the scene for the April 10 – 13 New York Tabletop Market®, Forty One Madison is teaming up with the Holiday House to dress the lobby with festive tablescapes by top designers Paris Forino and Jaime Walters. Inspired by the Hamptons locale for the next Holiday House, Forino will be creating a spring dessert display and Walters will be bringing to life a coastal vibe imagined for summer entertaining. The displays, which will incorporate numerous pieces from Forty One Madison showrooms, will be on view throughout the Show.
Forino is best known for creating beautifully enchanting interiors without compromising function. Her studio, founded in 2012, was ranked by the New York Post as one of the “Top 4 Firms Designing New York City,” and other domestic as well as international design publications have featured her work.
Walters, whose recently established design practice is quickly becoming recognized as one to watch, is no stranger to the world of design and renovation having worked for top names like Anthropologie and HGTV. Her international upbringing informs her global aesthetic and helped develop her passion for handwork and superior craftsmanship.
ABOUT HOLIDAY HOUSE
Holiday House is a preeminent designer showhouse held in New York City and the Hamptons and, most recently, London. In 2008 interior designer and philanthropist Iris Dankner founded the showhouse to raise awareness about and funds for breast cancer research. Having survived the disease through early detection, Iris has made it her mission to support the cause and help women who are facing the same fight. Holiday House has enabled Iris to combine her passion for design with her efforts to help others by creating a unique twist on the traditional showhouse model. Each year Holiday House recruits top interior designers from across the country to transform the historic Academy Mansion on the Upper East Side as well as magnificent homes in the Hamptons into original holiday or life themed living spaces. Since 2012 Holiday House has benefited The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF®) and has raised in excess of one million dollars for breast cancer research and outreach and community programs.
