NOW OPEN: Metropolitan Home’s Showtime House
Entertainment meets modern design in a house inspired by six original Showtime series and directed by America’s top designers

PCH 0908 showtime B 499x330 Metropolitan Homes Showtime House

After much anticipation, the curtain comes up and the red carpet rolls out on Metropolitan Home’s Showtime house: a transformation of a 19th century New York City townhouse into a modernist masterpiece inspired by six Showtime original series—Californication, Dexter™, The L Word®, The Tudors and Weeds, plus the soon-to-be-launched United States of Tara. Open to the public every Saturday and Sunday from September 13 to October 26, this fusion of design and entertainment is the first of its kind and will be brought to life by design’s top stars: Jamie Drake, Tori Golub, Laura Kirar, Amy Lau, White Webb, Vicente Wolf, Johnny Grey, Luca Andrisani, Kirsten Brant, Jim Zivic, and Enea. From top to bottom of this stunning four-story Greek Revival townhouse, you’ll enter visionary spaces that evoke the style, seduction, drama, and extreme wit of these acclaimed Showtime series. It’s a place where design rewrites fiction into fact and makes fantasy take flight.

Your thoughts is important; the issue is something that not enough people are talking intelligently about. I am really happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to it.
