April 19th – May 17th 2009

Prominently situated on over two lush acres, the 2009 Pasadena Showcase House of Design was created in 1917 by the renowned Pasadena architect, G. Lawrence Stimson. This magnificent Italian Renaissance Revival estate features many luxurious details such as grand marble staircase, acanthus scroll columns and exquisitely paneled ceilings. A traditional teahouse with a koi pond and a wrap around creek grace one of the lovely garden areas. In addition to this elegant estate Mr. Stimson is also famous for his design of South Orange Grove Wrigley Mansion, headquarters for the Pasadena Tournament of Roses.

You are certain to be delighted by the magical transformation of the interior of the mansion by a prestigious group of twenty-five designers who have created exquisite rooms which reflect the house's unique historical past while also showcasing the latest in style and design.

After touring the mansion you are welcome to enjoy the gardens on your own or join a docent led tour. Nine renowned landscape designers have created inspiring garden areas that highlight the best of California's famed outdoor living.

Enjoy a snack, lunch or early dinner in our "Restaurant At Showcase" and meander through the "Shops At Showcase" as you hunt for unique items from our twenty- eight boutiques. The Gardens, Restaurant and Shops are open to the public without a ticket any day during Showcase hours.

As you ride the shuttle back to your car, you can reflect on your day knowing that you have contributed to the community. Proceeds from tickets and purchases are used for children's music programs, an annual instrumental competition and a gifts and grants program that supports the Los Angeles Philharmonic, schools and other non-profit organizations.
