MODERN AMERICANA: STUDIO FURNITURE FROM HIGH CRAFT TO HIGH GLAM EXPANDED EDITION By Todd Merrill
RIZZOLI | $85

Todd Merrill has added 60 pages to his original book, the first ever authoritative examination of the great studio furniture makers and designers who, from 1940 through the 1990s, defined American high style. The survey of the period continues with two massive additional chapters, covering the genesis of the women’s studio furniture movement, from the late 1970s to 2000 – in a breathtaking chapter by veteran NYT writer Eve Kahn. Also included is a chapter on showrooms by design writer and art marketing authority Roberta Maneker, written with an insider’s voice from the period.
