Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Living with mid-century modern design.

From the 'soft modernism' of Scandinavian furniture, to the sleek clean lines of the lighting created by the Castiglione brothers in Italy, all the iconic designs and designers of the period are featured in this guide to one of the most exciting periods of design history. The careers and influence of groundbreaking designers, including Charles and Ray Eames, Alvar Aalto, Robin and Lucienne Day, Georg Jensen, Anne Jacobsen and many others, are described in stand-alone feature pages. Key pieces (including a number of previously unpublished examples) are placed in historical context with coverage of innovations in design, production methods and materials.

Mid-century Modern design is hugely popular with collectors and decorators alike. This invaluable book explores the most desirable furniture, ceramics, glass, metalware, interiors, and textiles from the late 1930s through to the early 1960s.

About the Author

Judith Miller began collecting in the 1960s while a student at Edinburgh University in Scotland. She has since extended and reinforced her knowledge of antiques and design through international research, becoming one of the world's leading experts in the field. In 1979, Judith co-founded the international best-seller Miller's Antiques Price Guide and has since written more than 100 books, all of which are held in high regard by colectors and dealers.
