Lights, Camera, Furniture! Film and Furniture at Modernism Week 2020, Palm Springs

We are very excited to announce that F&F’s Paula Benson has been invited to talk at Modernism Week’s signature February festival in colourful Palm Springs, the desert resort city known for it’s modernist architecture and palm trees.

Modernism Week is an annual celebration of midcentury modern design, architecture, art, fashion and culture. This exciting festival takes place in February in the Palm Springs area of Southern California and has become one of the world’s most important events dedicated to midcentury design. Over 350 events take place including the Modernism Show & Sale, Signature Home Tours, films, lectures, Premier Double Decker Architectural Bus Tours, nightly parties and live music, walking and bike tours, tours of Sunnylands, fashion, classic cars, modern garden tours, a vintage travel trailer exhibition, and more.

In her talk “Lights, Camera, Furniture! The Stories Behind Iconic Film Decor” Paula will sit down with KCRW’s Design & Architecture host Frances Anderton (with whom Paula did a radio interview last year) to share their favourite film furniture and reveal their hidden narrative.
