The West Elm House, 634 South Bedford Drive, Palm Springs, CA 92264
Join West Elm for the Big Reveal Party, the debut of The West Elm House, an idea 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. Guests at this event will enjoy signature cocktails, retro appetizers and swanky tunes while being among the first to experience the “Midcentury to Next-Century Transformation” of this iconic 1950s home by Palmer & Krisel.
West Elm, a branch of Williams Sonoma, has created its first Living Showroom here in Palm Springs, by using its product line of organic, handcrafted, sustainably sourced and Fair Trade Certified™ sofas, tables, beds, lighting and accessories to furnish this classic Midcentury home (circa 1958) originally built by the legendary Alexander Construction Company and recently remodeled by Solterra Builders. This renovation celebrates how we can respect and honor the iconic architecture of the past while at the same time embracing life in the 21st Century.
