LIVING IN A MODERN WAY: CALIFORNIA DESIGN 1930-1965

Spotted at the Portland Museum of Art, “Living in a Modern Way: California Design 1930-1965.”  In 1951, designer Greta Magnusson Grossman observed that California design was “not a superimposed style, but an answer to present conditions…. It has developed out of our own preferences for living in a modern way.” California design influenced the material culture of the entire country, in everything from architecture to fashion. This generously illustrated book is the first comprehensive examination of California’s mid-century modern design. $50, available at Barnes & Noble.
