Modern living began with the homes of the 1950s. Casting aside the privations of the Second World War, American architects embraced the must-have mod-cons: they wrapped fitted kitchens around fridges, washing machines, dishwashers and electric ovens, gave televisions pride of place in the living room, and built integrated garages for enormous space-age cars. So why was this change so radical? In what ways did life change for people moving into these swanky new homes, and why has the legacy of the 1950s home endured for so long? Diane Boucher answers these questions and more in this colorful introduction to the homes that embody the golden age of modern design.

"A tribute to what would become known as 'the American dream' -- the ideal dwelling replete with time-saving appliances, a car, space to entertain indoors and outside, plus the requisite TV. Home sweet home never looked so good." --San Jose Mercury News
