THE MODERN ROOM
Giulio Peluzzi (editor)
Giulio Peluzzi (Editor): THE MODERN ROOM. NYC: Universe Books, 1967. First English language edition (originally published in Italian under the title "Forma e Colore Nell'Arredamento Moderno"). A fine hardcover book in a fine dust jacket: page edges of the uncoated text pages are lightly age-toned. A superior copy of this easily-abused and much misused volume. hard to imagine finding a nicer one of these.
9 x 11.75 hardcover book with 210 pages and 288 color photographs. This book was printed in Italy and it really shows-- the color reproduction is truly stunning. The engraving and plates were dead-on perfect for this edition, and all the photographs are printed on qualtiy glossy paper. My highest recommendation.
This is the best book on the Interior Design transition that occured as people migrated from 1950s organic austerity into the enlightened (and very colorful) 1960s. This volume would be an invaluable resource for anybody attemting to restore a contemporary residential environment. You have been warned.
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: "Using 288 photographs, all in full color, of actual rooms in both new and remodeled houses and apartments, this book gives tasteful solutions to the many decorating problems encountered in the creation of as truly modern room. The Modern Room taps the creative resources of American and European architects, designers, and manufacturers."
