Ella Moody (editor)
8.75 x 11.25 hardcover book with 160 pages of Apartments and Houses, Furniture, Prints, Weaves, Glass, Lights and Tableware, Ceramics, Addresses , circa 1973. This book was printed in England by the Shenval Press and the color reproduction is truly stunning. The engraving and plates were dead-on perfect for this edition, and all the photographs are printed on quality glossy paper. My highest recommendation.
Every object presented in this edition is identified by its designers and manufacturer/distributor. Dimensions and materials are also noted. The presence of this information makes this an invaluable reference for collectors of modern decorative arts. You have been warned.
This book showcases the Interior Design transition that occurred as people migrated from 1950s organic austerity into the enlightened (and very colorful) 1960s. This volume would be an invaluable resource for anybody attempting to restore a contemporary residential environment.
This volume is also a valuable midcentury resource since it goes through the trouble of identifying both designers and manufacturers of furniture, fabrics, wall coverings, tiles, lamps and accessories. You know what I'm talking about.
From the book: "This year's issue of "Decorative Art" contains a dazzling array of examples of international design trends of the nineteen-seventies, including the use of shining walls to heighten and reflect furnishings. Walls are employed to enhance furniture, glass, ceramics, and textiles of today's rooms. "
In one superbly modern setting they reflect the owner's collection of objects from the thirties."
High-white gloss, mirrors, and softer reflections from gleaming wallpapers, many inspired by Oriental themes, are being used in homes throughout the United States and Europe."
Many examples in this year's volume are of the furnishing and decorative schemes from the homes of art collectors, designers and architects."
In addition to views of "Italy: The New Domestic Landscape;e," exhibit of environments and objects shown recently at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, there is a consideration of what the term "decorative art" implies in relation to the nineteen-seventies."
"Decorative Art" has something for everyone interested in the latest in decorating trends- ideas to improve a mediocre setting, inspiration for the interior designer, and more. It is a constant reminder of the infinite possibilities of shape and space, and of the continuous refining process which is Design. "
