Join Modernism Week in this very exclusive tour of the former 1962 home of midcentury modern superstar interior designer, Arthur Elrod, A.I.D. Palm Springs resident and local icon, Nelda Linsk, was an early client and life long friend of Arthur’s and will host this special tour. Nelda hired Arthur in 1962 to design the interiors of the famed Kaufmann House that Nelda and her husband owned at the time. The widely recognized Slim Aarons photograph “Poolside Gossip” features Nelda and friends enjoying the Elrod designed poolscape with architect Richard Neutra’s masterpiece in the background. Step back in time, The Elrod Escape, with 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. You’ll experience first-hand Arthur Elrod’s exquisite taste and style that is as relevant today as it was in 1962. 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! It’s a tour to remember.
Meet Adele Cygelman, author of the new publication, Arthur Elrod: Desert Modern Design, who will be signing books available for purchase throughout the event.
