"Among the myriad studies of significant mid-century interiors, none are more celebrated yet under-published as the homes created by architects and designers for themselves. This new collection of photographs presents the most compelling homes by influential mid-century designers such as Russel Wright, Wharton Esherick, and Eva Zeisel, and allows a personal glimpse of the private spaces in which they chose to spend their lives.
"Intimate as well as revelatory, Leslie Williamson's photographs show these creative homes as they were lived in by their designers, with detailed images of Ray Eames's blue-and-white china collections and Irving Harper's artful paper sculptures offering candid insights into the now-iconic personalities. Unlike any other, this unique collection explores the depths of Walter Gropius's historic Bauhaus home in Massachusetts, Wharton Esherick's completely handmade Pennsylvania house, and Albert Frey's floating modernist aerie perched atop a Palm Springs rock outcropping. Personal and breathtaking by turn—these homes are exemplary studies of domestic modernism at its warmest and most creative."
