Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
These three books together provide a look at 20th-century modernist design, from accessories to furniture to homes. Beginning with early modernist design, Hoban covers pre-World War II, mid-century, pop, and postmodern interior and personal accessories, such as ceramics, glass, textiles, jewelry, and graphic design. She emphasizes furniture and includes information on a selection of designers and design movements. Ellison, a collector and dealer in Scandinavian and other modern furnishings, gives a comprehensive view of modern Scandinavian furniture, with an alphabetical listing of designers that includes a brief biography, notable designs, and color photographs of their work. Appendixes include information on manufacturers and their designers and an international source guide to this furniture style. The furniture and accessories displayed in these two books would be welcome in the houses shown by Weaving and Freedman. The authors provide a history of the modernist architectural style, a review of the major architects, and contemporary modernist houses, concluding with a list of those open to the public. All three books are recommended for professional, academic, and large interior design collections, with Hoban's book also recommended for public libraries.
