Modernism Week announced today that designer Christopher Kennedy will be spearheading the “Modernism Week Show House 2014: The Christopher Kennedy Compound” project, which will be the site of different events.
“When I first conceptualized this Modernism Week Designer Show House more than a year ago, I knew it would take a global village. And it has,” explains Kennedy in a press release. “I am humbled by how generously both the local and national design/build communities have stepped up to provide talent, time and product to reinterpret this iconic property in true Palm Springs-style. All along, my philosophy has been to go big by drawing on our local resources. Design show rooms and distributors from all over the Coachella Valley have brought the lines they represent on board to donate tens of thousands of dollars in furnishings and fixtures. The Modernist Community is in for a spectacular treat.”
The show house is a Stan Sackley home circa 1971 and includes rooms created by interior design specialists including Celerie Kemble, Jiun Ho, Trina Turk, Lori Dennis, Patrick Dragonette, Sammy Castro, Ron Woodson, and Jamie Rummerfield.
Christopher Kennedy is a nationally-published interior and furniture designer based in Palm Springs. His work has been featured in publications like “Architectural Digest,” “Dwell Magazine, “Elle Decor” and more.
Modernism Week runs Feb. 13 to 23.
