“The Palm Springs Modernism Show & Sale is a unique opportunity for attendees to purchase midcentury modern furniture, decorative and fine arts—mostly from the 1950s through the 1970s,” says Rosemary Krieger, president of Dolphin Promotions, which produces the show. “We ensure that the dealers we feature at this important show offer the finest items of this special period of design history, and that many of their items reflect the midcentury resort lifestyle enjoyed in Palm Springs.”

The show, to be held at the Palm Springs Convention Center, will open with a preview reception on February 17 to benefit Modernism Week
