The post-war consumer boom of the 1950s, coupled with a desire for new, innovative design resulted in one of the most exciting decades in the history of interiors - a visual revolution that was captured on the pages of British House & Garden.

In Fifties House, mid-century modern enthusiast Catriona Gray has drawn on the magazine's peerless archive, curating the best illustrations and photographs to show how the use of colour, pattern, homewares and furniture evolved through the decade. The homes of key tastemakers are featured including Le Corbusier, Gio Ponti, Terence Conran and Hans and Florence Knoll.

The first title in the new Decades of Design series, House & Garden Fifties House is required reading for mid-century modern enthusiasts, collectors and decorators in search of inspiration from the most influential homes of the past.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Mid-century modern maven Catriona Gray has teamed up with Octopus Books to produce a unique compilation of original period photographs plundered from the influential House & Garden magazine. Add to that a foreword by the legendary Sir Terence Conran, and you have a book that is sure to delight everyone from interior designers to hardcore design collectors. * Mark Hill *
Mid-century modernists will be shocked at the real 1950s in House & Garden's time machine volume Fifties House. The chairs, lighting and fabrics we love today are there, along with the avocados as a signifier of chic, and some howlers. Fascinating. * Stella Magazine *
