Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

Addressing interior design and decoration from the ancients to the moderns, this text describes the dominant influences of fashion design and focuses on the close relationship between interior design and the architecture of our times.

 

With the Sixth Edition of Interior Design and Decoration, Stanley Abercrombie continues the revival of this time-tested and well-respected text—first published in 1937—to make it meet the needs of today’s teachers and students. In his second revision of Sherrill Whiton’s classic text, Abercrombie presents the full history of interior design—during all periods and throughout all regions—in a manner that facilitates easy comparisons among different times, places, and styles.


Review:

The classic presentation of interior design and decoration
has been revised and updated for the new millennium...

Wide in scope and rich in detail, this book offers a unified treatment of interior design and the fine arts histories. Integrating information about materials and techniques with history, the text has been updated to include the developments in technology, interior design, and safety standards of the late twentieth century. Maps and timelines, special topic boxes, and chapter summaries help students to navigate through the wealth of material, and extensive color illustrations as welt as Gilbert Werle's classic black and white drawings add visual clarity, and excitement.

Each chapter begins with some consideration of various design determinants, a chronology of key periods, dynasties, rulers, and events. There is a review of artistic accomplishments, and the common characteristics of the period are summarized. Discussions of character, quality, and cross-cultural comparison provide a basis for a challenging engagement with all of the elements of interior design.
