From the Publisher;

An intimate and revealing collection of photographs of astonishingly
beautiful, iconic, and undiscovered mid-century interiors. Among significant
mid-century interiors, none are more celebrated yet underpublished as the homes
created by architects and interior designers for themselves. This collection of
newly commissioned photographs presents the most compelling homes by influential
mid-century designers, such as Russel Wright, George Nakashima, Harry Bertoia,
Charles and Ray Eames, and Eva Zeisel, among others.

Intimate as well as revelatory, Williamson’s photographs show these creative
homes as they were lived in by their designers: Walter Gropius’s historic
Bauhaus home in Massachusetts; Albert Frey’s floating modernist aerie on a Palm
Springs rock outcropping; Wharton Esherick’s completely handmade Pennsylvania
house, from the organic handcarved staircase to the iconic furniture. Personal
and breathtaking by turn—these homes are exemplary studies of domestic modernism
at its warmest and most creative.
