If You’re Into Mid-Century Modern Design, You Need This Book

From the house of Eames, Nelson, Noguchi and more, a coffee table book you’ll actually read.

Herman-Miller—A-Way-of-Living-gear-patrol-full-lead

If there were ever a coffee table book you might actually read, Herman Miller’s new 600-page tome is it. Herman Miller: A Way of Living covers the company’s 114-year history in 10 chapters, a couple thousand illustrations and plenty of grainy archival photos. From selling princess dressers to Sears Roebuck to the introduction of the Eames Lounge to the making of the “Dot-Com Throne,” the book details the turning points in the Michigan furniture maker’s past, including hundreds of pages dedicated to its stable of mid-century modern masters.
