This book defines the history of modern interior
design through the reuse of existing buildings. This
approach allows the history of the interior to be
viewed as separate from the history of architecture
and instead enables the interior to develop its own
historical narrative.
Following a brief introduction, the book is
organized in six chapters on the following themes:
home, work, retail, display, leisure, and culture.
Each chapter comprises a selection of case studies
in chronological order. 52 key examples dating from
1900 to the present are explored in terms of context,
concept, organization, and detail and are illustrated
with photographs, plans, sections, concept drawings,
and sketches.
This unique history will be invaluable for students
of interior architecture and design seeking a survey
tailored especially for them, as well as appealing to
interested general readers.

• A new approach specifically tailored for interior design

• Wide range of illustrations, including specially drawn
explanatory sketches

• Detailed examination will be invaluable for students
