For Palm’s Sake
Welcome to a modern adaptation that pays tribute to California’s most iconic desert community, Palm Springs. Long before celebrities, golf courses, and resorts dotted the landscape, there stood a grouping of palm trees that signified life. Home to North America’s largest natural Fan Palm oasis, this area was the ancestral home of the Agua Caliente band of Cahuilla Indians. With its unique ecosystem, the region has sustained life for thousands of years. “For Palm’s Sake”, a story that rose from primitive oasis to Mid-century marvel.
