Notes from a Trip to Palm Springs

Palm Springs holds a place in the popular imagination as a mid-century mecca, and while this may overstate its period glamor, it's not too far from the truth. Much of the landmark architecture was hidden behind gates we couldn't pass through, but there are many developments, such as Deepwell Estates and Racquet Club Estates, with some lovely, low, period style. We stayed here, and it's every bit as good as it looks:

We also had the great pleasure of meeting a bunch of folks in the mid-century furniture business. We spoke with folks at:

JP Denmark
Swank Interiors

And other places whose names I can't recall. Every one of these places has items worth seeing, and people worth talking to.

It really was a great place. Looking forward to returning, and trying to decide if it will be worth it to participate in Palm Springs Modernism Week in February.
