Holiday House NYC 2019 — For over 23 years, the designer Jasmine Lam, has been an important figure in the design industry. And also one of the brightest stars. Born and raised in San Diego and Los Angeles — with a BA from UCLA and an MS degree in Interior Design from Pratt Institute — she left the nest to go east, New York. There, in the city of dreams, she ventured into creating her own studio in 2002, after working for Natalie Zimmerman Design Production, Gensler New York and S. Russell Groves. Ever since then, she has left her mark on everything imaginable. From high-end residences and offices for entertainment industry clients to financial banking clients and global retail stores, the list goes on.
So it came as no surprise when it was announced that Lam will be taking part in the internationally-celebrated Holiday House NYC 2019, which is a celebration of interior design in support of breast cancer research. In fact, the House is one of the world’s most inspiring interior design exhibitions. One that has featured the industry’s leading designers and brands for over a decade.
It was founded in 2008 by interior designer and breast cancer survivor Iris Dankner. And today, 11 years later, the exhibition is nothing less than a feast for the eyes. The house is an interior design show house where top interior designers and lifestyle brands showcase their talent to raise critical funds for the prevention and cure of breast cancer. So needless to say that it is attracting designers and curious design-lovers from all over the world. And when asking Lam what drew her to the Holiday House NYC, the answer couldn’t have been more clear:
“Iris Dankner! I love that she has created a fundraising event in the design world that helps raise money for an important cause.”
Design-wise Lam left her mark on the Reception Room on the second floor, giving us a quick run-down on what inspired her:
“We have been inspired by a clean, bright palette that is quiet and luxurious. This art lover’s Reception Room is curated with fine furniture mixed with large scale paintings and sculptures throughout.”
Holiday House NYC is open until 15th December so if you are in New York, pay it a visit. And don’t forget to swing by the Reception Room and check out Jasmine Lam’s contribution!
