I’m so excited for the release of Todd Merrill and Julie Iovine’s new book Modern Americana: Studio Furniture From High Craft to High Glam and it’s launch party next week! There really isn’t a good comprehensive guide to this period and since Todd is such an expert, I’m glad he was the one to put it together! With interest in this field at an all-time high among collectors, auction houses, museums, designers, and shelter magazines, I decided the time was ripe to write the definitive book about these modern masters, he says.

The organic wood designs of people like Wharton Esherick and Sam Maloof are shown, as is the glamorous, decorative modernism of Tommi Parzinger and James Mont and the bold opulence of Paul Evans and Karl Springer, to name a few of the 27 designers featured in the book

About Todd Merrill 20th Century. Since its inception over 15 years ago, Todd Merrill Studio has established itself as a prime source for iconic, high end, vintage studio design, culminating with Todd Merrill’s seminal book on the subject Modern Americana: Studio Furniture from High Craft to High Glam (Rizzoli, 2008). Eager to discover today’s studio artists, Merrill launched Studio Contemporary in 2009, representing an international group of 20 established and emerging contemporary artists making unique, material-driven works in the grey space between art and design.

By pushing the boundaries in both the vintage and contemporary markets Merrill has contributed to the rediscovery of great American designers of the 20th Century and subsequently was inspired to publish two books on mid-century designers, James Mont: The King Cole Penthouse.

By pushing the boundaries in both the vintage and contemporary markets Merrill has contributed to the rediscovery of great American designers of the 20th Century and subsequently was inspired to publish two books on mid-century designers, James Mont: The King Cole Penthouse, 2007, and Modern Americana: Studio Furniture from High Craft to High Glam, the first definitive book on late. 20th Century American studio furniture published by Rizzoli in November 2008.

Todd Merrill's New Book Is a Must-Have for Design Collectors. In 1966 Life did a story on the circular house woodworker Arthur Espenet Carpenter designed for himself in Bolinas, California. The original book raised the profiles of American furniture makers like George Nakashima and Paul Evans.

In the current world of twentieth-century design collecting, the trend has shifted away from accessible, mass-manufactured modernist furniture and toward designs that were custom-made or produced in very limited editions, with emphasis on American studio design of the 1940s to the 1990s. In contrast to the mass-produced mid-century furniture by Knoll and Herman Miller, American studio designs of the same period focused on novel forms and exquisite craftsmanship. Ranging from the organic shapes of George Nakashima and Vladimir Kagan to metalworks by Paul Evans, these limited production designs were highly sought after in their days by original tastemakers and movie stars. In the last decade, a revival for these rare designs began with connoisseurs such as Tom Ford. Modern Americana is the first full survey of the designs of this prolific but forgotten period, bringing to life again the works of Samuel Marx, Billy Haines, Wendell Castle, T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, Karl Springer, James Mont, and many others -- including J.B. Blunk, Michael Coffey, Wharton Esherick, Arthur Espenet Carpenter, Sam Maloof, Jack Rogers Hopkins, Paul Evans & Philip Lloyd Powell, Vladimir Kagan, George Nakashima, Silas Seandel, Charles Hollis Jones, Philip & Kevin LaVerne, Tommi Parzinger, Harvey Probber, Edward Wormley, John Dickinson, Arthur Elrod, and Paul Laszlo.
