INTERIORS May 1951
Francis de N. Schroeder (editor): INTERIORS. NYC: Whitney Publications, [Volume 110, no. 10] May 1951. Original edition. A very good or better magazine with a lightly rubbed cover with faint discoloration to a spot on bottom edge: a remakably well-preserved copy. Interior unmarked and very clean. Out-of-print. Cover by Andy Warhol.
9 x 12 magazine with 170 pages of color and b/w examples of the best modern American interior and industrial design, circa 1951-- with beautiful graphic design and production throughout. George Nelson famously served as Editorial contributor to Interiors, where he used the magazine as his bully pulpit for bringing modernism to middle-class America. Interiors was a hard-core interior design publication, as shown by their publishing credo: "Published for the Interior Designers Group which includes: interior designers, architects who do interior work, industrial designers who specialize in interior furnishings, the interior decorating departments of retail stores, and all concerned with the creation and production of interiors-- both residential and commercial."
Interiors during its peak in the 1950s was the most beautifully designed and printed American Interiors magazine I have seen. An amazing vintage mid-century resource, not to be missed. Excellent vintage resource for wallpaper, rugs and floorware, funiture, lighting, decorative objects, etc.
Includes advertising (many full-page and/or color) from the following manufacturers and companies: Century Lighting, Directional Modern Showrooms, Dunbar Furniture Corp., Hanson, Heifetz, Lightolier, Herman Miller Furniture Company, Harvey Probber, Raymor, Ben Rose, John Stuart, and many others.
