One our favorite events of the year is around the corner, Modernism Week! Taking place in Palm Springs, CA from February 14-24, Modernism Week is a celebration of iconic architecture and design. We can’t help to think what it'd be like to listen to a Wrensilva console in any of these thoughtfully designed spaces.
Below, find a roundup of a few of our favorite modern design properties being featured during Modernism Week. See you out there.

Wallpaper* Magazine said it best, “Being one of the first great architects to bring the international style to Palm Springs and the wider region, Albert Frey is widely recognized, way beyond his death in 1998, as one of the true pioneers of the area’s remarkable architectural legacy; his buildings often acting as the visual shorthand for what has been known ever since as Desert Modernism.”
For the first time ever, you will have the chance to view “The Forgotten Frey,” one of the architects' personal homes. Tickets and tour info here.
