This is the ARF Thrift and Treasure Shop like you’ve never seen it before.

On Saturday, the organization will open its doors at 17 Poxabogue Lane in Sagaponack as a Designer Show House and Sale, featuring eight rooms and one outdoor space styled by some of New York’s top interior decorators.

From a “Doggie Den” by Southampton-based Brady Design to “The Treillage Foyer” by Blue Carreon, each room includes items from the shop, as well as the collections of the designers — who are all animal lovers, including Jack Deamer of JED Design, Richard Mishaan, Barbara Ostrom, Melanie Roy Design, Tom Samet and Nathan Wold of Hamptons House Design, Kim Seybert, and Thayer’s Hardware & Patio.

“Now in its eighth year, the ARF Designer Show House is a great kick-off to the summer season,” Lisa McCarthy, ARF board president, said in a press release. “We salute the designers who have brought such creativity to their assignment, and look forward to seeing everyone. Please bring your friends; it is a fun way to support the animals.”

Tickets to an exclusive preview hour on Saturday at 5 p.m. are $250, or $150 for the following cocktail reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Admission to the sale on Sunday and Monday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, is a suggested $10 donation, and children are free. All proceeds will benefit ARF and the organization’s dedicated work to find loving homes for animals in need. For more information, please call (631) 537-0400 or visit
