Paying homage to the l mid-century modern architecture of Palm Springs, this luxurious book showcases historic luxe homes designed by some of the greats including Richard Neutra, who was practicing the international style in LA, lAlbert Frey, and Paul Williams, as well as private residences by today’s leading architects.

There’s definitely something mystical about Palm Springs – from the desert landscape overshadowed by snow-capped mountains to the bling of the famous residents. Since Gary Cooper built one of the first modernist houses in Palm Springs in the 1930s, this desert oasis has entranced Hollywood. A mecca for the international jet set that lured Frank Sinatra, Walter Annenberg, and others, Palm Springs came into its own architecturally as a haven for visionary modernists.

With original new photography, Palm Springs captures the allure of this famed modernist destination. The book profiles outstanding examples such as the Annenberg Estate, the Ford House, and the Kaufmann House, shown in their splendor, as well as today’s restorations by top interior designers such as Martyn Lawrence Bullard and fashion designer Trina Turk.
