Mid-Century Modern Design, published by Thames & Hudson, is an in-depth guide to mid-20th-century design. Developing manufacturing techniques, new innovations and creative use of materials gave rise to a whole new era of furniture design, which is now presented in over 400 pages and hundreds of illustrations. The book includes both familiar and little less well-known designers from all over the world.

Mid-Century Modern Furniture is an essential source of information for design collectors, enthusiasts and of course for those who simply love peeking at beautiful objects. The book is written by Dominic Bradbury, a journalist and a journalist and writer specialising in architecture and design.

The period between the mid 1940s and early 1970s was one of the most productive, creative and exciting eras for objects and furniture in the home. Post-war optimism, new modes of living, innovation in manufacturing and inventive material use all gave rise to an explosion of domestic design. From armchairs and chaises longues to cabinets and nightstands, this comprehensive and richly illustrated publication offers a complete overview of mid-century modern furniture design, with hundreds of pieces by both well- and lesser-known designers from around the world, making it the ultimate resource for collectors, aficionados and lovers of timeless design.
