Description - Laverne by Michael Krzyzanowski

The modern interior design movement was well underway when artists Erwine and Edwina Laverne started their modest printed textiles and wallpaper business in New York City. By 1944 they had invented Marbelia wallcoverings and went on to develop the award-winning textile designs and the iconic 1960s clear plastic Lily and Lotus chair designs that made them famous. This is the documentary of their success, illustrated with 400 color photos, original catalog pages, and advertising pictures. Careful research and many personal dealings with Erwine Laverne gave the author first-hand knowledge of the company and its development. Graphic designers, vintage collectors, and interiors specialists all will find the story and illustrations fascinating and inspiring.
