Interior design has undergone a number of revolutions in the past 100 years and through it all, the concept of design seeped into the general cultural consciousness, touching every aspect of our day-to-day lives, from the bedroom to the office. A Century of Interior Design tells the story of this field's most eventful century in a completely accessible yet comprehensive way, by detailing all the most important milestones in a visual timeline format.

Every two to four pages represent a different year, and for each year fascinating developments are summed up under different categories. No other design retrospective book has produced such a nuanced and well-rounded picture of the field. Culled from a multitude of archives and researched over several years, the stunning images show key interior views, furniture, and fabrics. Whether you're a designer looking for period inspiration or a student seeking a specific fact, it's easy to thumb immediately to the year desired in this essential reference.
