Each Memorial Day weekend, the ARF Thrift and Treasure Shop transforms into a stunning designer show house to benefit the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons.
The eighth annual ARF Designer Show House features eight rooms and one outdoor space at the shop in Sagaponack designed by some of New York’s most well-known decorators. This year’s event is co-chaired by Gordon Hoppe, Alex Papachristidis, and Marshall Watson.
The impressive lineup of top designers will create rooms using ARF Thrift Shop items and pieces they donate. Every item is for sale.
“Now in its eighth year, the ARF Designer Show House is a great kick-off to the summer season. We salute the designers who have brought such creativity to their assignment and look forward to seeing everyone. Please bring your friends. It is a fun way to support the animals,” said Lisa McCarthy, ARF Board President.
The designers include Brady Design, Blue Carreon, Jack Deamer of JED Design, Richard Mishaan, Barbara Ostrom, Melanie Roy Design, Tom Samet and Nathan Wold of Hamptons House Design LLC, Kim Seybert, and Thayer’s Hardware & Patio.
Each of the designers is an animal lover who aims to help ARF cats and dogs.
More than 200 guests are expected to attend the preview cocktail party on Saturday, May 26. An exclusive preview hour will be held at 5 PM; tickets are $250. General admission to the cocktail party starts at 6 PM and tickets are $150. The show house will also be open on Sunday and Monday from 10 AM to 4 PM and there is a $10 suggested donation. All proceeds will benefit ARF and the organization’s dedicated work to find homes for animals in need.
