The West Elm House, Palm SpringsWhat is The West Elm House?

The West Elm House is an idea house where visitors can experience the “Midcentury to Next Century Transformation” of an iconic 1950s home.  West Elm, a branch of Williams-Sonoma, recently opened a store here in Downtown Palm Springs. Now they have teamed up with Mike Flannery of Acme House Company to use their product line of organic, handcrafted, sustainably sourced and Fair Trade Certified™ sofas, tables, beds, lighting and accessories to furnish a classic Midcentury home (circa 1957) originally built by the Alexander Construction Company and recently remodeled by Solterra Builders.

The West Elm House, Palm SpringsThe West Elm House is the brain child of Brand Specialist, John-Patrick, who worked with Christopher Kennedy to produce the first Palm Springs Modernism Week Show House in 2014. That event has become an anchor program for Modernism Week. Now John-Patrick has connected Solterra Builders, West Elm and Acme House Company to introduce the next big thing in Mid Mod Design: a year-long concept house created to inspire and guide architecture and design enthusiasts when it comes to the art of modernizing a midcentury home for the way we live today.

Patricia Lockwood, an award-winning designer with Palm Desert-based Design Vision Studio, said The West Elm House topped her list of  favorite Modernism Week events. “My design firm hosted a group of clients and friends for a day in Palm Springs to celebrate Modernism Week.  We bought our tickets and scheduled our tours starting with The West Elm House. What a great surprise! It didn’t feel like an extension of the showroom. Instead it felt like a home.  The furnishings and décor were harmonious with the architecture – both inside and  out.  Well done West Elm & Acme House Company! The design nailed the playful Palm Springs lifestyle!”

A Love Letter From Copenhagen

We were absolutely thrilled when Lifestyle, Design & Travel Blogger Allan Torp decided to stay in one of our Palm Springs Vacation Home Rentals during Modernism Week. The 30-something Copenhagen Dweller is the insightful genius behind Bungalow5. He wanted to immerse himself in Modernism – so we arranged for him to stay at The Aperture, one of our Palm Springs Vacation Rental Homes in Racquet Club Estates. This classic Alexander home (circa 1960) has been lovingly restored… respecting the architectural pedigree while updating it for the way we live today.

Allan is known throughout Europe as the car loving, design-centric, self-confessed shoe addict, Crossfit fanatic and constant traveler who uses Bungalow5 as his platform while he tweets, blogs, vlogs and snapchats his way around the world – commenting on everything from stylish electric toothbrushes and the merits of gluten free ginger-apple crumple pie to the unpretentious, relaxed and nonchalant aesthetic of Parisian designer Charlotte de Tonnac.  He even waxes simplistic about the more ordinary things in life  – including the benefits of waking up early so you can get shit done.

You might have thought our Acme team would have been nervous about impressing such a respected and well-traveled jetsetter who has been everywhere from Cape Town and Barcelona to New York and Los Angeles. But hey, everyday we earn 5-Star reviews from our more typical but still very important guests like Andrea of Lemont, Illinois and Germine from Tujunga, California.  We’re confident we can knock the socks off just about anyone. That’s what we do.

We were right not to worry.  Allan enjoyed his stay at The Aperture, one of our very cool midcentury modern Palm Springs Vacation Rental Homes in The Racquet Club Estates neighborhood.  His review of The Aperture was like a love letter from Copenhagen.
