America in the 1950s: the world was not so much a stage as a setpiece for TV, the new national phenomenon.  It was a time when how things looked - and how we looked - mattered, a decade of design that comes to vibrant life in As Seen on TV.  From the painting-by-numbers fad to the public fascination with the First Lady's apparel to the television sensation of Elvis Presley to the sculptural refinement of the automobile.
