Palm Springs oozes midcentury modern vibes—from the swanky hotels to the famous houses that line neighborhood streets (like Frank Sinatra’s old abode, which you can actually rent). But did you know that the city is also famous for its collection of vintage furniture shops specializing in 1950s style? Where do you think Leonardo DiCaprio goes to furnish his desert digs?
The city is overflowing with covetable secondhand décor—from teak credenzas to Herman Miller lounge chairs—expertly curated by knowledgeable local boutique owners. Looking for a souvenir to stuff in your suitcase? You’ll also find smaller items like sculptures, lamps, books, and other knick knacks that are worthy of space on your mantel. And inventory constantly changes since most items are one-of-a-kind, so a midcentury couch or unique piece of art will set you apart from your catalog-shopping friends.
