History of Interior Design is a comprehensive survey covering the design history of architecture, interiors, furniture, and accessories in civilizations all over the world, from ancient times to the present century. With a primary focus on Western civilizations, 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.
