Serious Sinatra fanatics will most likely freak out to learn his Palm Springs estate is available as a (high end) vacation rental–either in a good way (because they can’t believe ordinary mortals–with money–can stay there) or in a bad way (because they can’t believe ordinary mortals–with no ties to the man himself–can stay there). Honestly, while the architecture and grounds are amazing, the interiors are mostly drab. But I assume that won’t matter to someone who really only wants to party like the Rat Pack used to.
Architecture: E. Stewart Williams.
I’ve always said there’s nothing better than when simple design is done well. These Eames dining chairs are the epitome of that philosophy–working beautifully in this MCM space as well as in the more GLAMasculine room in my previous post. Having eight of these for my dining table would put just the right polish on my own home.
Great rooms, filled to the brim with stuff–but sweet stuff; the Bauhaus chairs and Tivoli sound system in the first image are lust-worthy. Throw in the trifecta of Eames plywood, Eames lounge (see it peeking out there in the second photo?) and Panton dining chairs–all so nicely done, too. Terrific textures, manly materials, all kinds of goodies.
