The new Ace Hotel & Swim Club (www.acehotel.com/palmsprings) is a stark departure from the Eames chairs and kidney-shaped coffee tables that typically define Palm Springs' midcentury style. Ace rooms have a back-to-the-land hippie sensibility, with walls and windows covered in tent canvas. Much of the furniture, including the leather chair and industrial dresser shown here, is vintage. Like the design-centric Ace Hotels in Seattle and Portland, Ore., the new Palm Springs lodging displays some clever ideas that could translate to the home.
