Design Hudson

Designer Showcase Home Tours in Historic Hudson, NY

Memorial Day Weekend Friday, May 24 – Sunday, May 26

Join us for the 2nd Annual Design Hudson—celebrating the architecture of Hudson, the region’s design talent and the breadth of resources in Hudson’s expanding shopping district.

The theme for this year’s festival is the New Hudson River School. Participating designers will express their contemporary interpretations of the palette, landscape and outlook of Hudson Valley painters Thomas Cole and Frederic Church.

Friday night’s opening party is a rare opportunity to visit the Bronson House, where the historical architecture will be juxtaposed with contemporary furniture, art and home decor created by Hudson businesses and artisans.

On Saturday and Sunday, go at your own pace on our self-guided tour of the Bronson House and other architecturally significant Hudson homes, each with a room that showcases the work of a local designer. This intimate look inside Hudson’s historic homes will be a unique experience for design enthusiasts and professionals alike.

On Saturday afternoon, Hudson Hall will host a panel discussion around the theme of the New Hudson River School and the influences of color, landscape and time. The panel will include representatives from Olana State Historic Site of Frederic Church’s home, Thomas Cole National Historic Site and artists from the Hudson Hall’s concurrent exhibition Hudson Athens Lights.

And on Saturday night businesses along Warren Street and beyond will be hosting special events in their spaces to highlight their unique collections of furniture, art, fashion, scents and more.

Stay tuned for a few other additions to the weekend.
