Modern Americana: Studio Furniture From High Craft to High Glam
In the current world of twentieth-century design collecting, the trend has shifted away from accessible, mass-manufactured modernist furniture and toward designs that were custom-made or produced in very limited editions, with emphasis on American studio design of the 1940s to the 1990s.
James Mont: The King Cole Penthouse
The first book devoted to James Mont, the important and uniquely American Mid-Century interior and furniture designer. He established his reputation in America for creating custom clandestine bars during prohibition for Hollywood stars and East Coast mobsters. By the mid-thirties he had a thriving design business based in New York City.
