Mid-Century Modern: Interiors, Furniture, Design Details
The 1950s house was a scientific triumph. It had been designed in a laboratory and tested on inhabitants of all ages before being built for the masses. Never had the home been so contemporary - antiques and period styles were banished for an entire decade as householders concentrated on achieving a complete 'look' for the home. Mid-Century Modern explores the interior decor of this time, concentrating on all aspects of a home's decoration - walls, flooring, surfaces, lighting and, of course, furniture. The book goes on to feature case studies illustrating beautiful contemporary homes that exhibit the mid-century style in an exemplary way and reveal how the 1950s look, complete with collector's pieces, can be mixed and matched with interior elements of other styles and from other eras.
