Christopher Kennedy

Interior Designer

Palm Springs–based interior designer Christopher Kennedy synthesizes big-city style with relaxed resort living to create spaces that are layered, livable and inviting. Kennedy launched his eponymous firm in 2003, later adding a luxury furnishings line in 2010. Architectural Digest, Dwell, Elle Decor and the Los Angeles Times have all featured his work. An embodiment of jet-set modern luxury and vibrant California glamour, the annual designer show house Kennedy organizes for Palm Springs Modernism Week (February 12 to 22) is a perennial highlight of the event. In anticipation of this year’s house — which opens on February 14 — we asked the designer to shop 1stdibs for a collection of items inspired by the retro-glam property.
