The Amalfi Collection, which has been gracing the covers of national design magazines since the 1950’s, was pleased to announce that our Phoenician Collection was selected for the Modernism Week Show House at The Christopher Kennedy Compound sponsored by Traditional Home.
Now, for those of you who aren’t familiar with Modernism Week, it is a huge annual event that honors the best of mid-century architecture and design, in Palm Springs.
Robert Howard, from Amalfi Living, designed The Phoenician Collection to be a deep seating comfort line, celebrating arches and circles. The finish and fabrics selected for the show had a relaxing retro vibe, reminiscent of drinking Singapore Slings and Gin Rickey’s poolside, circa 1955, the year Amalfi Living originally started.
Simultaneously, the Palm Spring modernism design movement also began in the 1950’s. Popular entertainers such as Bob Hope, Frank Sinatra, and Bing Crosby built homes there. So it’s no coincidence the Phoenician Collection complimented the setting so well.
Speaking of setting, Gray Malin, made his inaugural debut as an interior designer at Modernism Week by designing the poolside space. We were delighted when he asked to have the Phoenician Collection, by Amalfi Living, featured in his stunning showcase. The snow white curves of the tables and furniture combined with the turquoise cushions with white piping made for a serene scene.
Manufactured by the same artisans who handcraft the “ORIGINAL” Amalfi Collection. The Phoenician Collection is made from solid marine grade stainless steel, one piece at a time, right here in the USA. That’s really unique in terms of luxurious lines because our our patio furniture collections can be customized to the client’s wishes. From the size and shape of a lounge chair to the finish and upholstery of the cushions.
