Postwar Interior Design 1945-1960

Posted July 5, 2017

One of the most well-researched and carefully illustrated books on modern design after World War II. It includes reliable documentation of an important period in Eames design history.

Postwar Interior Design offers a comprehensive, in-depth look at the best designs of the time–including accessories, textiles, lighting, and architectural settings. It also examines the designers themselves and the forces that shaped them. The book includes hundreds of archival photographs, comprehensive design commentaries, and detailed manufacturing specifications.

The authors of this serious, scholarly work did their homework. They spent quality time at the Herman Miller archives in Michigan, and carefully reviewed Eames historic records.
