Great photos, but I did not find the text to be able to tell me much. For example, the chapter on ceramics of the 1950's focused on northern European styles...and then didn't really show any photos of what it was describing. At least show the piece on the page you mention it on, that's only fair.

"Long before today's trend for minimal living took hold, the cool, laconic interiors of the mid-twentieth century were characterized by their understated beauty and fluid interpretation of space." ~ from the author Bradley Quinn
this was a pretty basic narrative about mid-century design, but it hit all of the major points and has lovely photographs of some of my favorite pieces of furniture...
wonderful details of the psychology of furniture and design.
