Description

History of Interior Design is a comprehensive survey covering the design history of architecture, interiors, furniture, and accessories in civilisations all over the world, from ancient times to the present century. With a primary focus on Western civilisations, it also explores Eastern design history. Each chapter begins with background information about the social and cultural context and technical innovations of the period and place and shows their impact on interior design motifs. Throughout the text, influences of the styles and design solution of one culture on others are highlighted, demonstrating how interior design has evolved as a continuing exchange of ideas.

Major architects and designers of each period and their signature styles are also discussed and are featured in a biographical appendix. Vocabulary terms called out in the text are defined in a comprehensive glossary. This is a book that all interior design students can benefit from as they use an understanding of the past to create a sense of the present and inspiration for future directions in their own design aesthetic.

Features
-Notations of influences of design ideas of cultures on one another
-Consistent organisation of chapters to facilitate understanding of the context in which period styles evolve
-More than 700 unique full-color photographs by the author from her worldwide travels
-Instructor's Guide provides suggestions for planning the course and using the text in the classroom
-PowerPoint Presentation provides outlines and ideas for lectures; compatible with PC and Mac platforms
