This volume is the single best source for anyone interested in exploring and experiencing Mid-Century Modern, the international design movement that still influences homes and lifestyles from Palm Springs to Long Island and from Japan to Scandinavia. It is divided into three main sections: “Media and Masters" profiles key creators, including Charles and Ray Eames, George Nakashima, Jean Prouvé, and Eero Saarinen; “Houses and Interiors” presents 20 seminal and complete Mid-Century Modern homes and their furnishings, including buildings by Philip Johnson, Mies van der Rohe, Alvar Aalto, and Marcel Breuer; and an alphabetical dictionary of people, terms, and places is a comprehensive reference to the movement. The informed and accessible texts are illustrated with more than 1,000 images that bring together classics and rarities, mass-produced items and unusual objets d’art.
