Sinatra Keeps It Classy

Frank Sinatra is no doubt a legend, and his Twin Palms desert resort is no exception. This Palm Springs, California home was designed in 1947 by Stewart Williams for Sinatra and his first wife Nancy. Comprised of 4,500 square feet, four bedrooms, his and her cabanas and a recording studio, this house is a work of art. The shag carpeting on the floor appears to be wall-to-wall but is probably bound so they could be turned into area rugs without fraying. Pictures below show his house from back in the 50'.

The newer picture above shows Moroccan shag rugs, which are similar to the rugs found in what was once Cameron's house. We also know that Frank was a big fan of shag, as was shown in his 1970 P400S Lamborghini Miura. If you are interested in staying in this legends former home, the price is $7,800 for 3 nights, with each additional night costing $2,600!

In the video below Frank sings the lyric "They can steal the rug from the floor - that's OK with me". We hope this is just a bluff, as these carpets totally complete this mid-century contemporary design.
