May 9, 2013, New York, NY- The 41st Annual Kips Bay Decorator Show House opened its doors to the public earlier this week. This event brought together eighteen prestigious interior decorators and architects to collaborate on the transformation of an Upper East Side limestone townhouse over a five week period. From now until June 4th, guests are permitted to visit and view the project in order to raise funds for New York City after school enrichment programs.

Each designer was given their own room for decoration in this 7000 sq ft townhouse. Opulent designs were used to make the interior look lavish for the exhibit. The Sharp Townhouse was first built in 1899 and contains skylights, an atrium and a wrought iron staircase. Marble was used to decorate countertops, backdrops, bathrooms.

Texas designer Jack Levy flattered Richard Sharpe, the estate’s owner, by asking to keep the original wallpaper and curtains in the sitting room that he redesigned. He then added exotic wood cabinets, silk curtains and a black marble fireplace.

Through the course of a month, these designers transformed an already stylish home into the pinnacle of fashion, using a variety of marble and natural stone. Exclusive Granite is a family owned and operated business that has supplied New York and New Jersey with marble and granite for over three decades.

This marble and granite company features interior designers a wide variety in marble colors and designs. They have a highly skilled and experienced staff of fabricators that are qualified to perfectly cut any design required into marble slabs. In addition to that, their technicians are trained to install the fabricated stone into our clients’ home or business. This can be a difficult job, and they are there to oversee that everything is lined up correctly.
