Mid-century modern is a trend that’s here to stay. You can thank “Mad Men” or our parents’ hand-me-downs, but either way, this style has taken up residence in homes across America. Nowhere is that more apparent than in Palm Springs. In fact, in Palm Springs, mid-century modern styling isn’t a return to anything; it’s honoring a style that never really left.
