Mid-Century Modern: Furniture of the 1950s is a loving tribute to the innovative furniture of the fifties and its enduring popularity. Fully illustrated with more than 200 full color and black & white photographs, this visual tour reveals the best of post-war furniture, from high concept designs to their kitschy counterparts. The 1950s were a unique time in the history of the furniture industry. Designers with backgrounds in architecture created organically shaped furniture using the new technologies and materials developed during the war, and sensuous, biomorphic designs proliferated. Appreciative consumers treasured the sleek, elegant, and functional designs of Charles Eames, George Nelson, Isamu Nogushi, Eero Saarinen, Harry Bertoia, and many others. This new furniture stacked, flexed, and folded, it was rearrangeable and interchangeable, and it addressed the needs of modern life. The book's highlights include the ten best chairs of the fifties, inside looks at the homes of top collectors, rare photographs from the Herman Miller archives and from the personal collections of designers such as Wendell Lovett and Vladimir Kagan. Taking full advantage of the ressurgence in popularity of retro-fifties design, this highly praised book lets the reader rediscover the wonders of boomerang-shaped coffee tables, the funky curvaciousness of 50s furniture, the industrial sleekness of cool metals, unusual angles, and other design delights.
