Take a twilight tour of the Cree House, designed in 1955 by Albert Frey. The house sits atop a hill overlooking the rugged desert terrain of Palm Springs. The homeowners have meticulously preserved and restored this architectural gem to its original condition over the past 24 months.

To create a faithfully curated design for ticketed tours during Modernism Week, February 13-23, 2020, Modern Hacienda will furnish the home with original designs by Charles & Ray Eames and George Nelson, all selected from the Herman Miller collection.

Following the tour, Eames Office director Eames Demetrios will give a special lecture about Charles and Ray’s life and work at Porsche Palm Springs, the same location where the Eames Office, Herman Miller, and Palm Springs Life have organized Eames Retrospective, an exhibition about the world of Charles and Ray Eames.

Cocktail reception to follow.
