Modern Retro: Living with Mid-Century Modern Style

In recent years, mid-20th-century modern furniture, ceramics, glass, and textiles have become hugely popular among people who appreciate the stylish contribution that these pieces make to today's home. Modern Retro will inspire you to create a look that combines classics by such visionaries as the Eameses, Bertoia, and Aalto with thrift-store finds and the best contemporary design. Created by modern classics dealer Andrew Weaving and design commentator Nell Bingham, with photography by Andrew Wood, Modern Retro is not about slavishly recreating a period feel. Instead, it shows how to take the best designs of the 1920s through the 1970s and use them throughout your home in a relaxed and individual way. Past and present can sit stylishly together -- allowing you to make the most of the gloriously eclectic forms, colors, and patterns available.
