This fall, a list of 23 seasoned designers will transform the annual Holiday House at the Academy Mansion in New York City using holidays ranging from Valentine’s Day to Flag Day to inspire the spaces.
Leonard Lauder will serve as honorary chair, Iris Dankner and Christopher Hyland as co-chairs, and interior designers Alexa Hampton, Thom Filicia and Mario Buatta as design chairs.

"When I realized that there were no major events benefitting women's issues in the interior design industry in New York City and yet so many accomplished women in the field, I was inspired to take on this project," said Iris Dankner, founder of Holiday House. "I am so proud of what we've accomplished in six years, promoting the design industry while also raising awareness and critical funds for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This year, we are thrilled to have a fabulous lineup of designers."
