“Opening our store downtown is just the beginning of our commitment to honoring the city’s heritage as the epicenter of mid-century modern design and contributing to the vibrancy of Downtown Palm Springs.”

It will stock products from 15 California-based makers and artisans, including Amanda Mills Design, BKB Ceramics, Concrete Geometric and Etta + Billie.
