2021 Decorators’ Show House

In 2020, the Knox House was purchased by Cellino Law for its Buffalo headquarters.  The  photos below were taken on May 5, 2021 with permission of the Junior League.  Subsequently, professional decorators would decorate each room in the house and the house would be open to the public for touring.  Profits would be donated by the
Junior League to deserving organizations throughout WNY.
