A valuable resource for design professionals, historians, and enthusiasts, the ACC Distribution Making America Modern chronicles the evolution of modern interior design in the United States throughout the 1930s. With images and detailed descriptions, design historian Marilyn F. Friedman presents more than 100 interiors by 50 designers and architects, including Donald Deskey, Paul T. Frankl, Percival Goodman, Frederick Kiesler, William Lescaze, William Muschenheim, Tommi Parzinger, Gilbert Rohde, Eugene Schoen, and Kem Weber; set designers Cedric Gibbons and Joseph Urban; and industrial designers Raymond Loewy, Walter Dorwin Teague, and Russel Wright. The book also highlights the work of women modernists who are practically unknown today, including Virginia Conner, Freda Diamond, Eleanor Le Maire, and Madame Majeska. This lively and important examination of the development of modernism comprehensively details, year by year, individual projects and their impact on modern interior design in America today.
