How Livable is a Modern House?

Idea House II from "McCall's Book of Modern Houses" (1951)
Designed by William Friedman and Hilde Reiss with architect Malcolm Lien

A great little story from an old Life, "How Livable is a Modern House?" Spoiler alert: very.

Some great photos of a modern home, the Idea House II, and an interesting read on how the "average" mid-century family felt about the new design and furniture movements coming at them.
