An inspiration board for the collection includes photos of the iconic Kaufmann House, designed in 1946 by Richard Neutra in the architectural style known as Desert Modernism; a young, hip Steve McQueen lounging in the midcentury-modern, Palm Springs home that he shared with actress Ali McGraw; a sweeping, black and white desert landscape from Ansel Adams and the abstract art compositions of Georgia O'Keefe, produced in her New Mexico studio during the aptly-named American Modernism movement.

The introduction is distinguished by a warm grey finish and bronze accents, creating a sophisticated palette for the assortment of modern classic designs. Together, the designs form a dimensional abstract of earthen tones so often found in the fading light of a late afternoon in the California desert.
