Mid-Century Modern: Interiors, Furniture, Design Details
By Bradley Quinn
The house of the 1950s was a technological achievement, constructed in a lab and checked on people of all ages before being developed for the general public. Never before had home been so thoroughly modern, with antiques and period styles wholly outlawed. Mid-Century Modern focuses on all facets of a home’s decoration—walls, flooring, textures, lighting, and, of course, furniture—in this landmark decade’s interior design. Case studies look at stunning modern homes that exemplify mid-century style. They provide suggestions for mixing and matching the 1950s look—complete with collector’s pieces—with elements from other periods.
