It all begins to make sense when Schneiderman goes into the history of what she calls interior prefab, starting with Sears prefabs, which came with interior fittings, (like these in Sanibel, Florida) to George Nelson's Storagewall of 1944 and the Eames storage units from 1950. These are not furniture in the traditional sense, but part of the interiors.
