“Design 1935-1965: What Modern Was offers a unique perspective on the decorative arts of the mid-twentieth century. The first serious book on a period just beginning to be researched by scholars and little known to collectors, it focuses on 200 of the finest objects from the most important designers and artists of the time.

This book was originally issued as a catalogue for an exhibit in Montreal in 1991 - Not only does it include detailed biographies of several hundred designers, but it catalogs in detail 200 pieces of 20th-century decorative art, including furniture, glass, fabrics, posters, jewelry, industrial design, etc. 

No overview of this period would be complete without the giants of modern design, whether early : Alvar Aalto, Marcel Breuer, Charles and Ray Eames, Eero Saarinen or later Ettore Sottsass, Mario Bellini, Peter Voulkos, and Sheila Hicks.
