Miller’s Mid-Century Modern
A comprehensive guide to one of the most exciting periods in design history. Published by Mitchell Beazley.
Judith Miller is a world-renowned author of antiques reference books, including the international bestselling Miller’s Antiques Price Guide, which is held in high regard by collectors and dealers. Here she turns her expert eye to Mid-Century Modern, a design style spanning the late 1940s to the early 1970s that has become hugely popular with collectors and decorators alike.
From the ‘soft modernism’ of Scandinavian furniture to the sleek lines of the lighting created by the Castiglioni brothers in Italy, she explores the most desirable interiors, furniture, ceramics, glass, metal-ware and textiles, and profiles the iconic designers of these eras, such as Alvar Aalto, Charles and Ray Eames, Robin and Lucienne Day, Arne Jacobsen and many others.
Miller’s expertise ensures that each key piece is placed in its historical context, while she also explains innovations in design, production methods and materials and includes price codes to help value and appraise any Mid-Century Modern collection.
