Overview

The first edition of John Pile's Interior Design instantly became the standard introduction to the subject. The second and third editions consolidated that position. Now, the fourth edition updates current practice in interior design and provides better coverage of professional bodies, environmental and social responsibilities, and commercial spaces. Through its generous format and elegant design, this book makes a powerful visual impact. More than 785 superb, carefully selected photographs and drawings of projects by many of the most accomplished and creative designers working today are complemented by 36 handy reference tables, 13 boxed features, and 10 Case Studies of particular note. Nearly 70 illustrations are new to this edition.

Outstanding Features of the Fourth Edition: More emphasis upon professionalism in the field with coverage of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), the Foundation for Interior Design Education Research (FIDER), the International Interior Design Association (IIDA), and other professional regulatory bodies. Greater attention to social and environmental responsibilities. Further coverage of the growing importance of digital technology. More illustrations of commercial interiors and products, thereby providing more balance between residential and commercial spaces. Emphasis upon the work of newer designers, thereby making current practice visible. Coverage that includes South Asia and new directions in the twenty-first century. An expanded, update bibliography with a list of useful websites, and an enlarged glossary.
