There is no hotter style today than the cooler than cool work of modern designers and architects from the 1940s and 50s. Endlessly inventive and immanently livable, mid-century modernism has an optimism and confidence born of postwar abundance - and spirited elegance that appeals still appeals to the eye many years later. In Classic Modern: Midcentury Modern at Home, design expert Deborah Dietsch introduces readers to the basic tenets of modern design and explains how the simple yet inspired forms typical of this style were so readily disseminated into mainstream American culture. Filled throughout with enticing examples of mid-century modern pieces from such timeless designers as Charles and Ray Eames and George Nelson, this beautiful book recaptures the excitement of the period's brilliant designs. Classic Modern also takes readers on a contemporary tour of two dozen notable houses and outstanding collections, showing how these important and livable modern pieces look in today's homes. For the collector, Dietsch also offers a catalog of mid-century furnishings that are still manufactured and available at retail. This book gives a good overview of what has been done and what you can now do with the furniture of the modern era. If you are considering investing in this type of furniture, it's a useful start on finding what you are interested in.This innovative and visually sumptuous book will demonstrate why homeowners and style critics today have come to embrace the elegance, wit, and clarity of modernism at it's most delightful.
