Like the author's The Catalogue of Contemporary Design ( LJ 11/15/83), this book presents the work of some of the best craftsmen, designers, and manufacturers of the past 40 years. In each of six chapters, devoted to architectural elements, lighting, kitchens and baths, decorative finishes, furniture, and decorative accessories, individual selections are accompanied by the address of the suppliers. Objects and services presented are selected to be affordable as well as to represent high-quality decorating solutions. Grow's compendium of over 500 excellent designs is complemented by 428 black-and-white and 20 color illustrations. A useful sourcebook offering a variety of alternatives, providing a broad, nonrestrictive definition of modern style in contemporary living. Recommended. Margaret Jean Owens, Santa Ana P.L., Cal.
