There is perhaps no area quite as closely associated with the mid-century modern movement as Palm Springs. It is no mistake that the most recent iteration of mid-century appreciation - the highly popular and widely acclaimed series Mad Men - set an iconic episode in the desert oasis of a town. The house featured in this post, known as the Leff/Florsheim house, has been restored to its original low profile, modern bones with updated fixtures and careful, ideal staging.
The house is built in the recognizable and luxuriously simple post and beam style with exposed Douglas fir throughout both interior and exterior spaces. Around the perimeter of the home, overhangs in this same beautiful wood provide shade for the sunny sides of the structure, keeping the essential outdoor entertaining spaces cool even during the brutal summers. After all, it is those sweaty, dry summers that draw people to Palm Springs in the first place, is it not?
A sparkling blue pool (another Palm Springs necessity) takes over the backyard area of the home with an expansive deck for lounging, dining, and ideally tossing back a cool martini or four. It would be the perfect place to invite your guests if your guest was Frank Sinatra in shorts.
