The Pasadena Showcase House of Design will open on Sunday, April 23, for public tours. Celebrating its 58th year, the 2023 Showcase House has reimagined Stewart House, a 1933 grand colonial estate with large acreage in a storied Pasadena neighborhood. Public tours run through May 21.
Following four months of renovation, over 25,000 guests will tour more than 30 interior and landscape design spaces highlighting cutting-edge trends in high-style living. The Shops at Showcase will offer items by boutique and craft merchants, and guests can enjoy onsite restaurants offering hot meals, grab and go snacks, beer, wine and cocktails. Entertainment showcasing local musicians will be offered and docent-led garden tours and special brunches will also be held.
“We feel incredibly lucky to present the Stewart House as our 58th Pasadena Showcase House of Design,” said Vikki Sung, president of Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts. “Featured in 1983 as the 19th Showcase House, we are revisiting this majestic estate, stewarded by the same family for nearly 40 years, to introduce it to a new generation.”
Designed by Marston & Maybury, one of Pasadena’s most celebrated architectural partnerships, Stewart House has more than 11,000 square feet of living space situated on two acres of landscaped and manicured grounds.
“It’s truly a quintessential Showcase House and just breathtaking in its grandeur,” said benefit chair Matt McIntyre. “The estate is iconic and the grounds are just exquisite so it’s a very compelling property.”
Twenty-one interior and landscape designers have been selected to participate in this year’s house. McIntyre was excited about their input.
“This is such a spectacular piece of architecture with such a graciousness about it,” he said. “The designers have considered this and are bringing cutting-edge design while honoring the house’s traditional roots. The style will be timeless.”
The Pasadena Showcase House of Design is the annual fundraising event for Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts, an all-volunteer nonprofit organization celebrating its 75th anniversary.
