Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The passion for mid-century modernism is here to stay, with the colors, patterns, and motifs that graced the interiors of the 1950s now making their presence felt in many contemporary designs for wallpaper, fabrics, and ceramics. Added to that, the timeless appeal of 1950s furniture and household' accessories-much of which is still in production today-has resulted in many of these items being labeled design classics. Now highly collectable, the attraction of these pieces lies in their understated beauty, simple lines, and streamlined shapes, which allow them to be combined successfully with present-day designs inspired by the era, as well as with many pieces from other periods to create an ultra-stylish home. Beginning with The Mid-century Home and Interior Decor, Bradley Quinn explains how mid-century designs revolutionized the modern lifestyle, setting the standard for a new generation of design in Europe as well as North America.

Synopsis:

The 1950s house was a scientific triumph, designed in a laboratory and tested on inhabitants of all ages before being built for the masses. Never had homes been so thoroughly contemporary, with antiques and period styles entirely banished. Mid-Century Modern explores the interior decor of this seminal decade, concentrating on all aspects of a home's decorationwalls, flooring, surfaces, lighting, and, of course, furniture. Case studies examine beautiful present-day homes that exhibit mid-century style in an exemplary way, and suggest ideas for taking the 1950s lookcomplete with collector's piecesand mixing and matching it with elements from other eras.
