With its rare vintage furniture, abstract and expressionist art and decorative objects, the Art Room is an eclectic collection for the Mid-Century enthusiast.
Owner Mark Davis arrived in Palm Springs in 2000 with a vision of dedicating his time to preserving and sharing the valley’s historic Mid-Century artifacts. He immersed himself in learning about the desert’s architectural beginnings and the part that a few talented pioneers played in changing its history. He started by opening Modern Home Design Showroom and consulting with clients who wanted an exclusive Mid-Century look. With great success, he landed projects like E. Stewart Williams’ Kenaston House and was able to dream bigger. More recently he opened the Art Room, an impressive 3200-square-foot showroom where he could display his entire collection of unique decorative items. The space features original paintings by Charles Levier once owned by Elvis Presley, as well as original automotive concept art from General Motors, Chrysler and Ford.
The Art Room celebrates twice a year with shows featuring new artists, and has scheduled an architectural photography exhibition on Sunday, Feb. 19, called “Contrast + Repetition,” organized by Sydney Institute of Technology professor and historian Annalisa Capurro. Make a point to stop by to see this amazing collection!
