The period between the mid 1940s and early 1970s was one of the most productive, creative and exciting eras for objects and furniture in the home. Post-war optimism, new modes of living, innovation in manufacturing and inventive material use all gave rise to an explosion of domestic design. From armchairs and chaises longues to cabinets and nightstands, this comprehensive and richly illustrated publication offers a complete overview of mid-century modern furniture design, with hundreds of pieces by both well- and lesser-known designers from around the world, making it the ultimate resource for collectors, aficionados and lovers of timeless design.
