The Bingley Fales House
The Junior League of Detroit (JLD) is pleased to announce our 23rd Designers’ Show House will be held in the spring of 2020 at the Bingley Fales House, a stately 15,000 square foot Georgian style mansion built in 1907. The home is located in Indian Village, a historic neighborhood in the city of Detroit. We look forward to working with the interior design community to create our next Show House. Once again, we are delighted to partner with ASPIRE DESIGN AND HOME magazine and anticipate welcoming close to 10,000 visitors to the property.
The Junior League of Detroit 2020 Designers’ Show House: The historic Bingley Fales House set in the neighborhood of Indian Village – 1771 Seminole Street, Detroit, MI
Nationally recognized and local interior designers will bring this magnificent home into the twenty-first century, while talented landscapers will transform the garden.
The Bingley Fales House, recognized in The American Institute of Architects Guide to Detroit Architecture, was designed and built in 1907 by Chittenden & Kotting for Bingley Fales, a lawyer and assistant general manager of the Edison Illuminating Company. At 15,000 square feet, the home is the largest residence in the Indian Village neighborhood, boasting 10 bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and two half baths. The home is set on two acres of land, which include formal gardens and a Pewabic Tile reflecting pool.
Nationally recognized and local interior designers will bring this magnificent home into the twenty-first century, while talented landscapers will transform the gardens.
Local design enthusiasts will have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the Bingley Fales House in its pre-renovated state during the JLD’s “Sneak-A-Peek” event October 11-13, 2019, before the grand unveiling of the redesigned home in spring 2020.
This will be the Junior League of Detroit’s 23rd Designers’ Show House. Funds raised support the JLD’s many community programs, including grants, college scholarships, and our key community impact initiative – Project EAT. ‘Project EAT’ creates a more food secure community by providing Education, Access, and Tools to those in need.
About the Junior League Of Detroit
The Junior League of Detroit is a dynamic group of women leaders who have been making change happen since 1914. For over 100 years, we have been striving to promote voluntarism, develop the potential of women, and improve communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
Since 1914, the Junior League of Detroit has completed 54 major projects in and around the City of Detroit and raised approximately $5 million in support of community projects.
Funds raised from the 2020 Designers’ Show House will underwrite our Project EAT Empowered Pantry, which provides daily meals, nutrition education, and cooking tools for employees of The Empowerment Plan*. Future plans include the creation of additional pantries to serve food insecure families across metro Detroit.
*The Empowerment Plan is a Detroit-based nonprofit organization focused on permanently elevating families from the generational cycle of homelessness. They hire single parents from local shelters and provide them with training and full-time employment as seamstresses so that they can earn a stable income, find secure housing, and regain their independence.
