The post-war consumer boom of the 1950s, coupled with a desire for new, innovative design, ushered in a riot of colour and an international outlook that ranged from Scandinavian furniture to American technology. Drawing on House & Garden magazine's vast photographic archive, this stylish and handsomely produced book charts the visual revolution that transformed the way we live as tastemakers such as Gio Ponti, Terence Conran and Hans and Florence Knoll created the blueprint for modern style.
