Buck House NYC

Buck House is a gallery and event space in the Carnegie Hill neighborhood of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The gallery opened in November 2001 and is owned and operated by artist, designer, and author Deborah Buck.[7] 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.”[8]

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.[9] 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.” [10]
