Modernism and Midcentury Gems in Palm Springs
Modernism Week (Feb. 14-24, 2019) is, without question, a big deal in Palm Springs. Last year, the program set new records with nearly 100,000 attendees. After all, what better place for midcentury design enthusiasts to convene than this stunning architectural oasis? The diverse slate of offerings includes more than 250 events, including seminars, home tours, double decker architectural bus tours, cocktail parties, live music, garden tours and even a vintage trailer exhibition.
Tips for Attending:
- The events will be listed online beginning Oct. 25, and tickets will go on sale Nov. 1 at noon PST.
- If you can’t make it to the big week, consider attending the Fall Preview weekend (October 18-21, 2018), which also offers a rich selection of programs, including bus tours and close looks at iconic homes. Tickets can be purchased on the website.
Drinking and Dining
Pair all that midcentury beauty with classic and retro concoctions at High Bar. Seek respite and refreshment in the rooftop poolside cabanas, where drinks are delivered on vintage cocktail carts.
