Palm Springs Modernism Week

Palm Springs Modernism Week

Made the trek out to Palm Springs last weekend to check out Modernism Week. It’s no secret that PS is filled with great midcentury modern stuff but even then, I was completely blown away with how amazing it was. So much good stuff in such a small area, definitely worth checking out. Make sure you get your tickets early because everything sells out, fast. More after the jump

If you like mid-century stuff & are going to be in the Palm Springs area. Check out the PSModCom app, well worth the $5 price (just be sure to download it while you’re at home because it’s 100mb & requires wifi to DL)
