Palm Springs, CA: Modernism

Visit: We stopped by Palm Springs on our way to LA, hoping to see old friends who moved there recently. Unfortunately, they were visiting family in Europe, but we were able to drive by their wonderful Modernist house (behind the Airstream in the picture).

Discoveries: Palm Springs is filled with vintage design stores, where Modernism is the dominent style. We found out that in fact they actually hold a Modernism Week in February each year. Johan found a chair designed by Mario Botta, and so we had to squeeze it into the growing collection. Amazingly it resided comfortably in the car, where books and other collected items were gradually filling the available space.
