Design Star-Studded Midcentury Style

Share

Quality

Over in Palm Springs' Indian Canyons neighborhood, Kelli and Christopher are visiting a true showpiece of modernist design -- and a home they both know well. The space was formerly the site of The Christopher Kennedy Compound, a showhouse decked out by top designers (including Kelli!) during Modernism Week in 2016. Follow the pair through the space as they point out the home's major moments, including a chandelier that still has a major influence on modern design, the chair style that evolved out of the era's new building materials, and more.
