The epicenter of all things Mid- Century Modern, Palm Springs, Ca, is holding it’s annual Modernism Week Feb 17- 27. 10 days of Parties, Lectures, Films, and Home Tours. Some of the highlight include Braniff Airlines vintage mod airline uniforms designed by Halson and Pucci.!! On display at the Riviera Hotel Feb 23-25. How about a house tour of Frank Sinatra’s Twim Palm Estate ?! You think they will mind if I make myself a martini and take a dip in the pool? Tickets are selling fast for this tour !! The 11th annual Modernism Show at the Convention Center is one of the best displays of high-end designer vintage modern furniture, clothing and accessories. And yes, it is for sale so get that credit card ready. I love the textile designs of Lucienne Day, and there is a film series of her fabulous designs. and if that wasn’t enough…how about a vintage travel trailer show? Airstream heaven. Possibly the best party is the party Feb 19 at the Canyon Country Club designed by Donald Wexler. Swanky country club attire required. Promised to be magically transformed to it’s 60’s glory days.
