ShowHouse santa Fe 2014 Gallery
Show House Santa Fe has quickly emerged as a power fundraising engine for promoting education for children. Our 2014 event raised over $50,000 with Dollars4schools.org as one of our non-profit benefactor of the net proceeds shared with the Lensic Performing Arts Educational Programs. For 2015 Dollars4schools.org under the Santa Fe Community Foundation will directly benefit from the net proceeds of this extraordinary Designer ShowHouse event where to date 2000 students and 18 Santa Fe schools have been impacted for activities, materials, and innovative programs.
ShowHouse Santa Fe gives local interior designers the opportunity to come together to share the challenges and camaraderie of their profession while working to improve the quality of our children’s education. By pooling their talents to create ShowHouse Santa Fe 2015, this inspiring group helps our schools and creates lasting beauty that benefits not just their clients but also the city at large.
Show House Santa Fe has taken its place in Santa Fe’s calendar of important annual arts events that attract both locals and visitors. In keeping with our designation as a UNESCO Creative City for Design, our talented 29 designers bring their ideas and accomplishments to a broad audience, showcasing for the world the preeminence of Santa Fe as a place of innovation and a source of design inspiration.
When Santa Fe Style first entered the consciousness of the art and design world in the 1980s, it delighted people with its warmth, livability, and adaptability. The sensual contours of adobe and the earthy appeal of vigas, kiva fireplaces, and expansive portales provided an inviting backdrop for interior designs ranging from antique Victorian to cutting-edge minimalism. Characterized by a reverence for natural materials, skilled craftsmanship, and an ancient aesthetic, the style quickly became emblematic of the region.
Show House 2015’s theme, "Lux New Mex" reinventing the western classics of leather, denim and suede, brings the unique boldness of Southwestern interior design front and center, empowering the talented pool of 29 Santa Fe designers to embrace history, luxury and sophistication like never before.
