This week kicks off the annual Palm Springs Modernism Week festivities! To celebrate the influence of mid-century design, Louis Vuitton Beverly Hills hosted a beautiful event showcasing their own collaboration pieces for the home. For those who don’t know, Palm Springs Modernism Week is an annual series of open houses, cocktail parties, and designer showcases bringing together the international design community in the mecca of mid-century architecture and interiors! Best of all, the organization is a charity, and proceeds of the week help to provide scholarships to students of design, and preserve the mid-century landmarks we love here in Southern California.
For this event, LV showcased their ‘Objets Nomades’, a collection of travel-inspired pieces for the home. With the same level of quality and attention to detail you would expect from the luxury fashion house, every piece is executed to complement the materials and timeless aesthetic of the brand. While embracing some of the defining characteristics of the modernist movement (modularity, minimal silhouettes, colorful accents), the collections is unmistakably fashion-inspired.
Seeing the collection in a crowded boutique is one thing, but I’m already looking for the perfect opportunity to see one of these hand-stitched beauties really sing in a residential space! For example, the folding leather stool is the perfect solution for a vanity in a small space - it’s efficient, comfortable, and undeniably luxurious. And when it isn’t being used, I can imagine it being folded away into a perfectly designed closet compartment for safe keeping.
Check out the collection yourself, and hopefully it inspires you the get creative with incorporating furnishings in your own closet or dressing room!
