The Last Wexler: Steel and Glass House

The late, famed Palm Springs architect Donald Wexler’s final steel house was completed just weeks ago.
Ferguson worked closely with real estate agent, Marc Sanders to procure beautiful plumbing fixtures and high-end appliances to compliment the home’s architectural legacy. The house is steel-framed, features floor-to-ceiling glass throughout an in-ground water feature and a split-level roof. In addition to a poolside party, Ferguson will be hosting media tours on request.

Ferguson Kitchen at CAMP

Ferguson is creating a demonstration kitchen at CAMP, Modernism Week’s ‘Community and Meeting Place’ and headquarters for tours and events. Located in an architecturally significant venue in downtown Palm Springs – the former 1957 J.W. Robinsons Department Store by Pereira & Luckman – the Ferguson Kitchen will be outfitted with the newest appliances from Bosch. It will also feature a comfortable lounge area, making it a true hub of activity at CAMP (open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily).

“We are extremely grateful to Ferguson for expanding their sponsorship this year, and are excited about the presence of the Ferguson Kitchen at CAMP,” said Modernism Week Board Chairman, J. Chris Mobley. “Their chef demonstrations will be a great addition to our educational programming, and the lounge area – open to the mountains with stunning views – is the perfect place to enjoy happy hour.”

Design Insights

“Design Insights,” a series of informal presentations and panel discussions hosted by Ferguson will feature nationally known designers and architects, taking place in the CAMP Theater at 333 S. Palm Canyon Drive, Palm Springs. Guests include designer and tastemaker Danny Seo, architects Andre Kikoski and Michael Lehrer, as well as leading designers visiting from the Southern California region. Presentations are scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays of Modernism Week and are priced at $10.“Ferguson has always been about bringing product innovations and quality to the home,” says Shawn McLaughlin, Director of Marketing for Ferguson. “We are thrilled to return as a sponsor to such a prestigious and experiential event like Modernism Week, and look forward to providing this year’s attendees with a memorable and visceral cultural experience – including the progressive art, design, fashion, music and food of the time.”
