Archer, a journalist who specializes in design and material culture, here joyfully salutes the ideals of the postwar American kitchen. It was an era in which designers, manufacturers, and consumers were all celebrating change, elevating convenience, and creating a modern definition of casual that would have been unimaginable to their grandparents. Amply illustrated with floor plans and hundreds of images from catalogs, magazines, advertisements, movies, and television The Midcentury Kitchen deftly identifies the promises that captured the attention of consumers, most of them women. If the pitches were sometimes clumsy by our standards, the design decisions downright odd, and some of the celebrated innovations never caught on, this was still an era that left a lasting imprint on American homes Hardcover. Color throughout.
