Synopsis: The 1940s marked a period of transition in interior design: the quarrel between ancient and modern was outdated, the combination of function and art was essential, and interior designers were more focused on new creations rather than on post-war reconstruction. The style of this period exhibits all the contradictions that arise from a society that was in a general state of shock, unsure of what the future would hold. Exemplary cabinet making marks the period, featuring famous names like T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbing and George Nelson from the United States. In France, Adnet, Arbus, Dominique, Kohlmann, Jallot, and Leleu produced sumptuous ensembles, with beautiful detailing. Furniture and Interiors of the 1940s features the work of numerous designers in 300 archival images and recent color photographs that shed new light on this transitional period in design, as it evolved both in Europe and in the United States.

'So while Neoclassical rococo curves were rediscovered in the exquisite creations of Parisian master cabinetmakers and on 'Hollywood baroque' movie sets, they were soon rivaled by the undulating curves of.biomorphic aluminum tables,.molded plywood chairs, and.sensually sculptural furnishings. Innovation, functionalism , and humanism were paving the way.' Color/b&w illus. 223p. Bookseller Inventory # 1806829
