Synopsis: This printed showroom brochure was released as a shortened version of the 1948-50 hardback catalog and utilizes portions of the photography found in that publication. The brochure mostly showcases the designs of George Nelson & Associates with Charles Eames, Isamu Noguchi & Paul Laszlo making up the remainder. The brochure pre-dates the release of the Fiberglass Chairs and so the Eames pages are dedicated to the plywood lounge, dining chairs and tables alongside the folding screen. The pages begin with a foreward from George Nelson, an interesting intake into the early formative years of the mid-century design period.
