Pasadena Showcase House of Design Empty House Party

Nearly 250 design enthusiasts and patrons of the arts attended the Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts’ (PSHA) annual Empty House Party on Friday, January 25. Held at the Boddy House on the grounds of Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge, the event marked the debut of the 55th Pasadena Showcase House of Design. During the event, guests mingled among the design spaces glimpsing the various design concepts while enjoying culinary offerings from the Patina Restaurant Group.

The soiree, chaired by Marilyn Anderson and Vikki Sung, treated guests and media to a sneak peak of the Hollywood Regency-style, 12,000-square-foot historic mansion. In the upcoming months, 26 design firms will transform the historic estate into the 21st Century.

The 2019 Showcase House will be held from April 21 through May 19. Tickets went on sale January 31. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit
