TALK OF THE TOWNE!
There is a gem of a store in the city of Palm Springs… Towne! Located at The Shops at Thirteen Forty Five, a building that houses a collective of fabulous decorative arts boutiques, Towne offers vintage furniture, accessories and gifts. Even the building itself, the iconic Harold Hicks building designed by E. Stewart Williams in 1955, lends to the experience!
Here’s a little 411 on the “Men about Towne”…the shop is owned by two charming & creative men, Brandon Hoskins and Stephen Wilson. These two seem to be brilliant at everything they endeavor to try! Brandon was a successful hair dresser and owned his own salon in Los Angeles, he then went on to launch his own interior design business, Brandon Hoskins Designs. After a tenure at Disney, Stephen founded a successful graphic design firm, Wilson Design Group. Currently both live in Palm Springs and buy and restore architectural homes. As if they didn’t have enough on their plate, Stephen and Brandon recently gave themselves the best justification for a shopping habit…a fabulous store to fill!
On this day, like many times before, I overheard several shoppers tell the proprietors how much they loved their store. Sentiments were generously bestowed about the beautifully curated and inspirational space. With a vibe that offers a mixture of pedigree, whimsy and just plain pretty, you are sure to find unique pieces for yourself and others when you hit Towne!
