Which Tesselle Products will be featured?

  • Breeze Blocks:  Josh Agle, known as The Artist Shag, and the creative director of this major remodel, selected Tesselle Orb White Breeze Blocks (as seen in the official Modernism Week Poster) to be featured throughout the exterior of the property.  Orb Breeze Blocks are in stock and available for immediate shipment.
  • Cement Tiles:  Shag has designed a series of 15 cement tiles, licensed exclusively by Tesselle, that will cover a 400 square foot poolside wall on the property.  According to Karin Jeske, Tesselle owner, "My heart skipped a beat when Josh showed me his concepts.  This tile collection is completely original, and so Shag.  Each tile will work independently, or in combination with others, making the design possibilities limitless, and these tiles will bring a joyful element to wall and floor surfaces in any setting."

What is The Shag House?
A fabulous 1958 classic midcentury modern Palm Springs home that has been re-envisioned by Shag to create an immersive, Shag-ified, colorful abode that will be the talk of the town! Discovering each room in the house is like exploring the interior of a Shag painting in real life. You will feel like you've stepped into a time warp and are living in the colorful backdrop of one of his serigraphs. The custom, Shag-designed interior decor reflects the ultimate throwback to the vintage Palm Springs lifestyle.

Josh Agle The Artist Shag


About The Artist Shag
Josh Agle is a painter, illustrator and product designer whose distinctive artistic style draws from commercial illustration from the past five decades. His work is imbued with an attitude and sly sense of humor which is unmistakably of our time. The paintings themselves celebrate consumerism and consumption on vividly colored sharply rendered panels; the characters interact in lavish, stylish surroundings. Visit the Shag website for more information.

The Shag House Before Picture

A "Before" Photo of The Shag House

Shag has drawn upon his architectural studies and the aesthetic of his artwork to reimagine this classic 1958 home, originally designed by Desert Modern architects Palmer & Krisel for the Alexander Construction Company. Modernist fans will certainly recognize the core of the house, where Shag has preserved much of the original layout including the familiar 3-bedroom, 2-bath floor plan, as well as the tongue and groove ceilings. The kitchen and living rooms remain in their original location as does the fireplace.
