Leslie Williamson

This gorgeously photographed volume features the under-published private spaces of both the icons and unknown vanguards of European mid-century architecture and design. Williamson has gained exclusive access to homes that are often closed to the public, and this intimacy is reflected in her incredibly detailed photographs.

Examples include: exclusive photographs of drawings and works from inside the files at Studio Achille Castiglioni in Milan; the Helsinki home of Aino and Alvar Aalto with signs of Functionalism still preserved; Finn Juhl's Scandinavian farmhouse with warm woods with bursts of primary colors; and Carlo Mollino's eccentric Italian lair filled with his sensual shaped designs.

This rare glimpse into the personal spaces is equal parts captivating and inspiring.
