Coffee table books are great. They can make great conversation pieces and sometimes even contain useful and interesting information. Or pictures, who doesn’t love a coffee table book with great pictures?
What makes a book like this even better is when it’s about a great company like Knoll, or more specifically Knoll Textiles.
Knoll Textiles 1945-2010 was put together to celebrate “65 years of premium textile design”.
“Reflecting the mid-century Modernist movement, Knoll Textiles prioritized color and texture as primary design elements, unlike any other company of the time. The book shows patterns created through the years in extreme detail, documented period by period. With insightful showroom, fabric swatch and furniture photographs, as well as sketches and illustrations, every page of this encyclopedia has something to teach the reader.”
For any mid-century modern fan in your life, or yourself, this book would make a great addition to your home library or maybe even your Florence Knoll Coffee Table (or other coffee table). Informative, graphic, and chock-full of interesting facts about Knoll and Knoll Textile designers both past and present.

Considered a very important design movement, mid-century modern furniture re-emerged as a coveted design aesthetic about 10 years ago and has continued to gain popularity over the years. The clean lines and organic shapes characteristic of items designed during this era work incredibly well with more modern furnishings. Our interior design clients often ask about iconic mid-twentieth century pieces such as the Saarinen Womb chair or Tulip table.
