Living with Mid-Century Modern Design
Octopus, 2018 (new edition)
From the ‘soft modernism’ of Scandinavian furniture to the sleek, clean lines of the lighting created by the Castiglioni brothers in Italy, Judith Miller’s Mid-century Modern takes an in-depth look at the artefacts and designers that shaped one of the most exciting periods of design history.
Extensively illustrated chapters explore the most desirable interiors, furniture, ceramics, glass, metalware and textiles of this hugely popular period. Key pieces are placed in an historical context with coverage of innovations in design, production methods and materials. Every item shown is accompanied by a price code to help value and appraise your Mid-Century collection. The ends with an invaluable illustrated directory of more than 175 key designers, from Alvar Aalto to Frantisek Zemek.
Miller’s Mid-century Modern is a handsome and informative guide to this important and enduring style and is destined to become a classic work of reference on the subject.
