The 1950s is now recognised as one of the most important design decades of the 20th century. The book begins with an introduction and a useful outline of the chronology of the decade; it is then divided into three sections. Homestyle takes the reader inside the 1950s house, featuring everything from furniture, ceramics, and glass to the latest technology, lighting, and kitchenware. Fashion uncovers womenswear and examines mens style and desirable accessories. Leisure features childrens toys, books, cinema, and rock and pop.
