The event, presented by Mercedes-Benz of Coral Gables and Mercedes-Benz of Cutler Bay, raises funds for Junior League of Miami’s programming and scholarships. It will showcase the work of notable interior designers, architects, and artists, who transform much of The Kampong property, including its structures and gardens.
Junior League of Miami Showhouse
The breathtaking Miami property known as The Kampong—which means "village" in Malay—was purchased by David Fairchild and his wife Marian Fairchild in 1916. Fairchild was one of the most influential horticulturists in the United States, and after constructing a house on the garden property in 1928, he and his wife made Miami their permanent home.
Today, the property is part of the National Tropical Botanical Garden and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Both it and most of the adjoining property has been absorbed to be part of The Kampong, creating more than 11 acres of verdant gardens.
This three-week event benefits the Junior League of Miami, which has helped women, children, and families in need across Miami since 1926. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable, and is focused on assisting families at risk in Miami Dade County. Their signature programs, Inn Transition North and Inn Transition South, provide transitional housing to women and children escaping domestic violence.
In addition to supporting a great cause, guests get to view the work of renowned interior designers, architects, and artists in rooms including the Fairchild-Sweeney House, Barbour Cottage, and Sausage Tree Cottage. In celebration of the property's 100th anniversary, the 2016 Junior League of Miami Showhouse will open The Kampong's doors to the public for a viewing of the work the talented industry leaders who have transformed the buildings and grounds.
