The art world is intrigued and enlightened by the Sotheby’s Designer Showhouse, an interactive auction that displays the best of interior and architectural design trends while simultaneously showcasing fine furniture and home accessories.

The internationally acclaimed auction house tapped thirteen premier designers to construct a state-of-the-art home experience on their fifth floor. The idea behind the showhouse is to provide a backdrop worthy of Sotheby’s finest home furnishing items. The showhouse is an enlightening experience for art collectors who struggle with product placement. Too much art can often make you feel like you’re living in a museum. As a featured showhouse designer, we are using this opportunity to provide insight in creating a comfortable living space and work with the grain of great art and antiques.
At St. Charles, we are using the showhouse to convey one of our core messages- that art can and should be displayed in the kitchen.
We’ll be posting behind the scenes videos and more. Follow our blog for exclusive access into the making of the first ever Sotheby’s Kitchen!
