Full Details

Enjoy the sunshine as you join us on a home tour of "Sunburst Palms" in the beautiful historic neighborhood of Deepwell in Palm Springs. Designed by Lawrence Lapham and built for Academy Award Winner Edward “Bud” Furer in 1956, this quintessentially midcentury modern house features a sweeping tongue and groove flat roof that spans the entire width of the property. Once inside the home, you will be able to walk through the spacious rooms, lined by walls of glass that face out to a large outdoor entertaining space and kidney-shaped pool with original rock waterfall.   

This vintage home celebrates extreme design angles typical of the era and interesting, organic shapes throughout, including an original, custom, built-in kidney shaped terrazzo coffee table with a small fire feature that has been restored as the centerpiece of the living room. Lovingly remodeled and customized by H3K Design for the new owners, the home features four bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, one of which is used as a perfect poolside media room. One of the most noteworthy attributes of the home is the eye-catching goldenrod yellow St. Charles kitchen, which remains fully-intact and was installed by previous homeowners as part of an early 1970s renovation. 

Modernism Week sponsors Bang & OlufsenBrizo, California ClosetsDunn-Edwards PaintsFerguson Bath, Kitchen and LightingJennAir and Willis generously contributed to this project.
