Buck House NYC

Buck House was a gallery and event space in the Carnegie Hill neighborhood of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The gallery opened in November 2001 and was owned and operated by artist, designer, and author Deborah Buck. Buck House displays and sells a variety of fine art and design objects, said to be among the “finest examples of design from the 19th century to the present.”

In 2006, Buck House launched a second, much larger space nearby called The Gallery at Buck House. This exhibition space hosted fine art exhibitions, book release parties, and events in benefit of charitable organizations. In September 2010, however, Buck House closed its two locations in favor of one, much larger space on Madison Avenue which combines the store and exhibition space. “The idea” said Deborah Buck in a 2010 interview, “was to create a meeting place and a salon like those in 1920s Paris.”

In September 2012 Buck House closed itrs bricks and mortar home but continues to live on the web at Deborah Buck continues to undertake design projects and to continue to explore her work as a fine artist. In 2013 she published The Windows of Buck House ; Fabulous, Fictional Females to great acclaim.
