Cocktail Party at the "Elrod Escape"

Join Modernism Week in this first and only evening cocktail soiree at the former 1962 home of Arthur Elrod, A.I.D. $150 (2 hrs)

Full Details

This will be an incredible night to remember! Imagine an evening of friends, cocktails and repartee at one of Palm Springs’ most legendary designer’s homes, with every detail beautifully appointed, the home exudes an authentic atmosphere of 1962 Palm Springs style. This is: The Elrod Escape.

Join Modernism Week in this first and only occasion to be invited into an evening soiree at the former 1962 home of Arthur Elrod, A.I.D. Our divine Hostess for the evening will be Nelda Linsk, one of Mr. Elrod’s closest friends, and Palm Springs icon. Mr. Elrod was a superstar interior designer before the word was coined. His great style and taste helped define, what we love about Palm Springs today, it’s Style. Enjoy poolside cocktails and decadent hors d’oeuvres beautifully presented by Jake’s Palm Springs.

Step back in time, the home’s meticulously preserved interiors, places you solidly in the midcentury period of Palm Springs. Every detail still reflects Arthur’s influence and design ethic with the home just as Arthur left it in 1969. It’s a time capsule from the midcentury.

The house was famously featured in Architectural Digest in 1963, highlighting the home’s “contemporary design in its truest and most stylish form.” And a feature story on Arthur’s home, in Palm Springs Life, 1964, further established the home’s importance to design. It is preserved for us to enjoy today and to see it as Arthur saw it!

Meet Adele Cygelman, author of the new publication, Arthur Elrod: Desert Modern Design, who will be signing books available for purchase throughout the event.
