Overview

"In its second edition, A History of Interior Design delivers the inside story on 6,000 years of personal and public space. John Pile acknowledges that interior design is a field with unclear boundaries, in which construction, architecture, the arts and crafts, technology, and product design all overlap. These topics are woven together in a narrative that runs from cave dwellings and temple architecture, through Gothic cathedrals and Renaissance palaces on to the grand civic spaces of the nineteenth century and the sleek interiors of modern skyscrapers." The depth of John Pile's survey of interior design is also increased with the addition of 180 new images throughout the book, including furniture, textiles, lighting, and product design.
