Palm Springs Modernism Week
One of the city’s biggest events of the year, Palm Springs Modernism Week is the best way to catch a glimpse of some of the region’s most impressive private homes. Properties designed by the likes of Donald Wexler, Albert Frey, and William Cody will open their doors to the public for tours, while collectors from across the country will buy and sell selections of mid-century-modern furniture and art.
The Modern Tour
Book a private showing of Palm Spring’s most famous homes with the lauded Modern Tour. The 2.5-hour customizable tour is led by local expert Michael Stern and takes guests inside homes designed Richard Neutra, E. Stewart Williams, and William Cody, and owned by the likes of Frank Sinatra (whose Twin Palms Estate is also available for vacation rental) and Elvis Presley.
