Today, more than ever, the midcentury modern look is everywhere. DVRs are set to capture Mad Men’s final season playing out on AMC. Flip through the April issue of Elle Décor, and you’ll find that more than half of the featured homes prominently include midcentury furniture pieces.
“Midcentury modern” itself is a difficult term to define. It broadly describes architecture, furniture, and graphic design from the middle of the 20th century (roughly 1933 to 1965, though some would argue the period is specifically limited to 1947 to 1957).
One of the local midcentury communities featured quite often is Paradise Palms and once a year in April, the Nevada Preservation Foundation puts on a tour of these homes.
Paradise Palms is a Mid Century Modern housing community in Las Vegas, Nevada. “This unique subdivision was the first planned community in Clark County. We used curvilinear street patterns instead of rectilinear. Paradise Palms won the American Builder magazine award for one of the best planned communities in the U.S. The architects were two young men by the names of Palmer and Krisel. The interior designs were by world-renowned C. Tony Pereira.” Irwin A. Molasky
Many of the homes in this tract back up to the Las Vegas National Golf Club. The Las Vegas National Golf Club began as the Stardust Country Club in 1961 (part of the Stardust Resort & Casino properties) And it was supposedly a Rat Pack hangout back in ‘the day.’
