The Symphony Show House, “A View to a Thrill,” continues this weekend in the 7,000-square-foot, 18th-floor penthouse of Founders Tower, 5900 Mosteller Drive.
The Show House, a fundraiser by the Oklahoma City Orchestra League, is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, with lunch served 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.; and from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, with lunch from noon to 2:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the door for $15. The fundraiser raises money for community music education. For more details, go to www.symphonyshowhouse.com/.
“This fundraising project is an amazing undertaking that involves a team of volunteers, interior and exterior designers, vendors, Realtors and retailers that works together for over seven months to complete,” organizers said on the web page. “The Show House Committee is the leadership group that organizes the event. Each year, newcomers join and veterans take on new aspects of the project. There's a place for every talent and everyone finds the effort challenging but immensely rewarding.”
With 19 designers or design teams represented, 32 distinct spaces, including the laundry room, foyer and 10 balconies, were remade for this year’s Show House, said Rhonda White, co-chairwoman.
“Top talents of interior and exterior design bring you beautiful spaces filled with hundreds of remarkable and unique items — and almost everything is on sale. Gorgeous furniture, elegant textiles, stunning ornaments and decor of every style around every corner at the Symphony Show House. Explore the rooms, talk to designers, browse for unique items throughout the house and in the boutique, enjoy lunch or a snack in the bistro — it’s all for a great cause,” the website says.
Proceeds benefit the Oklahoma City Philharmonic and music education programs of the Oklahoma City Orchestra League. The league said more than 40,000 people of all ages participate in music programs, including annual Youth Concerts for schoolchildren and the Society of Strings for adult beginner string players.
Designers working on this year’s Show House are:
Allenton Interiors, Amini’s Galleria, Bob Mills Furniture, Caroline Romano Designs, Carte’s Interiors, KASA Wallpaper Studio, Keven Carl Design, Koslow’s Furs, Lezley Lynch Design, Lifestyle Stores, Mathis Brothers Furniture, Meister Designs Inc., Mister Robert Fine Furniture & Design, Paint Inspirations Inc., SC Design, Traditions Fine Furniture and Design, UCO Interior Design and Whitworth Lawn and Landscape.
