Quality

The first stop for hosts Kelli and Christopher's Palm Springs design tour? The home of famed actor and Dragnet star Jack Webb, who used the spot as an escape from the hustle & bustle of Hollywood. It's packed with iconic elements of midcentury style, but Kelli and Christopher have their eyes on a few standouts: a sunburst mirror, a statement light fixture, and a color palette that marked a shift in technology (and later became a hallmark of the time).

Products In This Episode

Curved Pendant

Jamie Young

Seeded glass is a hand blown rough glass where the texture of the glass is the most important design element. These rough and bubbled hand-made glass pieces are rustic, yet sophisticated in the way they shine and glisten when the light hits the surface.

The Lino Dining Chair by Noir flaunts a flashy, two-toned aesthetic and luxurious comfort. The unique silhouette features plush, upholstered seating dressed in striking Black Cotton. Classic metal nailheads secure the fabric and provide a pop of color. Skinny tapered legs constructed of teak offer a bold tonal contrast and add a natural, organic vibe. Brass accents complete the classy look. All Noir products are created with a focus on fine craftsmanship and environmental sustainability. Due to the nature of handcrafted products, dimensions, details and /or colors represented may vary.
