Tucked away in Palm Springs is the first ever Modernism Week Show House, also known as The Christopher Kennedy Compound. The project is the namesake of its creator, Christopher Kennedy, the Palm Springs interior designer known for his unique brand of luxurious modernism that’s a happy complement to the city’s mid-century modern architecture and classic American style.
Given New York has the Kips Bay Decorator Show House and Beverly Hills has the Greystone Show House, Kennedy thought it high time for Palm Springs to have its own show home. With a vision of celebrating the Palm Springs legacy, Kennedy partnered with Luxe Interiors + Design, a leading national luxury design magazine, and a team of A-list designers to create an iconic Palm Springs experience in only a few months time.
The home features some of the latest, greatest materials in modern design, including several Crossville products that serve as versatile, durable, and flattering elements to the home’s mid-century sensibilities. Throughout the luxe dwelling, Crossville products are lovely additions to this creative, collaborative project.
Sideview Glass is a collection of multi-beveled glass tile with a modern touch, a perfect accessory for any space needing a dash of glamor. Naturally, this makes for a happy pairing with a mid-century modern design project.
With sophisticated, urban colors, Shades is a versatile porcelain stone that is as intriguing in monochromatic designs as it it is in mix-and-match patterns that blend the line’s range of hues.
Virtue captures the best qualities of the world’s purest white marbles in a durable, porcelain tile body. The elegant line features subtle, graceful veining and a clean look that’s equal parts classic and contemporary.
Made of recycled glass, Origins Glass mosaics require fewer raw materials to be used in production. With a fashion-forward color palette and plenty of options to choose from, Origins fits right in with the aesthetics of The Christopher Kennedy Compound.
Retro Active is a collection of versatile colors and size. As the name implies, this is an excellent modern element to include in iconic Palm Springs designs.
FILO 3+ is part of our Laminam by Crossville brand. Filo’s large format, lean profile panels are ideal for skinning surfaces in lasting style.
The Christopher Kennedy Compound will be revealed in February during Modernism Week. For more information on the project, visit The Christopher Kennedy Compound website and follow us on Twitter and Facebook for ongoing updates.
