PALM SPRINGS, CA – West Elm, a branch of Williams Sonoma, has transformed a classic 1957 Alexander home – creating their first Living Show Room right here in Palm Springs. The home will be open for public viewing during Palm Springs Modernism Week, February 16 – 26, 2017. Tickets are required. Click here for more information.
The West Elm House is an idea house where visitors can experience the “Midcentury to Next Century Transformation” of an iconic 1950s home. The Brooklyn-based company 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 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: 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.
Modernism Week & Beyond
