I’m on a mission to review all my outstanding non-fiction books this month, since it’s non-fiction November. And there’s a lot! Will I be able to do it? I’ll give it my best shot.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Miller’s Mid-Century Modern: Living with Mid-Century Modern Design is a collection of photos of modern designs of yesteryear, collated by Judith Miller.
This large, hardcover book is sets out to share with you the best styles of interior, and furniture design history from the 1940s to the 1970s. Included within are also selective pieces of ceramics, glass, metalware and textiles .
It’s a beauty of a book, and alongside being an arty one full of great designers and their precious designs, I think the most interesting part of this, (that many people will be buying this for) are the price codes to see how much everything is worth – should they have one of these (sometimes extravagant) items in their own collections. Although, this is not a Millers Antique guide and more of a coffee table book with lots of large pictures. Plus, many of these pieces featured are way out of most people’s budget. Well, in my circles, anyway!
Having said this if you love interior design, famous designers and do like collecting antique furniture and bits and bobs, this will make a lovely edition to your coffee table book collection. View all my reviews<– click there.

Now this is one I’d like! I scour yard sales, antique shops and thrift stores for rustic and antic things. They add character and actually mesh well wish some of my more modern items.
