This complete guide to the selection of materials for interiors has been updated to reflect recent changes to the industry. Written from the viewpoint of the working designer, Interior Design Materials and Specifications, 2nd Edition, describes each material’s characteristics and teaches students how to evaluate, select, and specify materials, taking into account factors including code compliance, building standards, sustainability guidelines, human needs, and bidding processes. Students will learn how to communicate with suppliers and vendors to achieve the results they envision and how to avoid some of the pitfalls common to material selection and specification.
