Handcrafted Modern.

In this beautifully laid out study, photographer Leslie Williamson investigates and documents the homes of the some of the most influential mid-century designers of all-time. With heavy-hitters such as Wharton Esherick, George Nakashima, Walter Gropius, and of course, the Eames, the images in this book are not only historical in nature, but also inspirational to the fullest extent of the word.

To imagine these creative powerhouses at home, surrounded in their ideal environment is like drinking ice cold spring water directly from the source. By including both zoomed-out shots and close-ups, Williamson creates a very warm and delightful capsule for both architecture and interior design alike. We love this book.
