Authors:
Judith Miller

From the 'soft modernism' of Scandinavian furniture to the sleek, clean lines of the lighting created by the Castiglioni brothers in Italy, Judith Miller's Mid-Century Modern reveals the glory of one of the most exciting periods of design history: the late 1940s to the 1970s. The book explores the most desirable interiors, furniture, ceramics, glass, metalware and textiles of this hugely popular period. It features all the iconic designs and designers of the era, with price codes to help value and appraise your mid-century collection. The careers and influence of ground-breaking designers, including Alvar Aalto, Charles and Ray Eames, Robin and Lucienne Day, Arne Jacobsen and many others, are described in stand-alone feature pages. Key pieces (including a number of previously unpublished examples) are placed in an historical context with coverage of innovations in design, production methods and materials.

Chairs

Judith Miller

The chair is the most ubiquitous design element in the domestic environment, and almost everyone who has tackled the world of design has ended up designing one. In Chairs Judith Miller scrutinises more than 100 of her favourite chairs reflecting on their iconic status, designers, historical facts, overall style, design details and ergonomic properties. More than 100 chairs have been specially photographed on location and are featured in chronological date order, ranging from early antiques such as the 1680 Wainscot Chair and the 1740 Louis XV Chaise Longue, to modern day collectables such as Marc Newson's 1988 'Embryo' and Tom Dixon's 2007 'Wingback'. This is not a catalogue; each chair has earned its place as an emblem of style, status, craft and art and is celebrated in this beautifully designed book.
