Populuxe Books

For you do-it-yourselfers out there, I ran across the Populuxe Books Example Library and list of books for purchase.  Brian and Vanessa find books from the 1950s, 60s and 70s...some obscure/out of print and some well-known... and make them available on their web site and on eBay. They describe themselves as the home for vintage design and décor information.

If you want to renovate or build a mid-century home, they have authentic plans from the era.  Their books also give you detailed plans for building MCM furniture, information about period decorating and directions for mid-century gardening and landscaping.

Here are a few pages on DIY furniture building from their Example Library:

Free form coffee table
Egg crate coffee table
Slat top coffee table

Fiberglass chair
