Offering a unique look at interior design, Materials and Components of Interior Architecture, Seventh Edition fully covers the nonstructural materials available to interior designers. With an eye on the environment, it provides a firm understanding of the products, properties, and uses of all materials, from floors, walls and ceilings to installation, and recycling. Going beyond paint and carpet, it explores over 27 different floorings and devotes separate chapters to kitchens and baths. Filled with the latest information provided directly from the suppliers, it helps readers think knowledgably and creatively about the “nuts and bolts” of interior designâ both in terms of structure and style. With an eye on the environment, it provides a firm understanding of the products, properties, and uses of all materials, covering everything from floors, walls and ceiling to installation, and recycling. Progressing from the ground upâ literallyâ it looks beyond the more decorative aspects of design to study the properties and uses of both finishing materials in the design field and structural materials in the architectural field. For interior designers and specifiers.

From the Publisher:

In this updated Fourth Edition of Riggs Materials and Components of Interior Architecture, the author deepens her exploration of materials for floors, walls and ceilings to include information on installation, the environment, and recycling. Coverage progresses from the ground up, literally, looking beyond the more decorative aspects of design, to study the properties and uses of both finishing materials in the design field and structural materials in the architecture field.

From the Back Cover:

An outstanding reference source for practicing designers, this thoroughly up-to-date guide to interior design provides a firm understanding of the products, properties, and uses of all materials. It offers a refreshing, "synergistic" approach, stressing the importance of cooperation between interior designers and architects, and mutual understanding of each others tools towards achieving a working and successful final project. It progresses from the ground up - literally - looking beyond the more decorative aspects of design to study the properties and uses of both finishing materials in the design field and structural materials in the architectural field. Threading a theme of environmental awareness throughout (i.e. recycling as ways to help cope with the growing landfill problems), it goes on to cover paints and finishes (and how these products have changed due to laws governing toxic emissions); carpets (with commercial specifications supplied by the Carpet and Rug Institute); flooring, walls, and ceilings (including their installation methods and maintenance requirements); cabinet construction; kitchens and bathrooms (featuring dynamic new materials now used in remodeling); and more. The metric system is integrated throughout, and manufacturers websites are listed for additional research.
