About this product
- DescriptionModern living began with the homes of the 1950s. Casting aside the privations of the Second World War, American architects embraced the must-have mod-cons: they wrapped fitted kitchens around fridges, washing machines, dishwashers and electric ovens, gave televisions pride of place in the living room, and built integrated garages for ermous space-age cars. So why was this change so radical? In what ways did life change for people moving into these swanky new homes, and why has the legacy of the 1950s home endured for so long? Diane Boucher answers these questions and more in this colorful introduction to the homes that embody the golden age of modern design.
- Author BiographyDiane Boucher was a researcher and docent at the Crab Tree Farm Collection of American and European Arts and Crafts, in Illinois. She has written extensively on American interiors and is the co-author of Arts and Crafts Rugs for Craftsman Interiors.
