The book Modern Furniture Classics. Postwar to Post-Modernism presents a visual history of furniture design from 1945 to the post-modern era, illustrated with spectacular colour photographs.

In this exciting period new materials and techniques created previously undreamed-of possibilities which were exploited to the full by innovative furniture designers such as Charles and Ray Eames, Harry Bertoia, Eero Saarinen and Ettore Sottsass. New styles include the factory lights and scaffolding supports of High-Tech, the Craft Revival, Art Furniture and Ergonomic styling, with each trend continuing to show intriguing national and regional differences.

This stunning survey has become the standard work on the furniture of the entire period: every piece included is able to stand for all time as a classic work of design.


Charlotte Fiell and Peter Fiell are leading authorities on twentieth-century design and have written numerous books on the subject. Together they run a design consultancy in London.
