"History of Interior Design provides a comprehensive survey of architecture, interiors, furniture, and accessories from ancient civilizations through the twentieth century. While primarily focusing on Western civilizations, the book expands on traditional studies and includes design histories of African, Eastern, and Indigenous cultures. Drawing on her experience as an instructor, Ireland covers not only social and technological influences but also specific characteristics of each of the periods and styles. The world has become a global community and though much is the same, much is different. Interpreting history can lead to a better understanding of the past, furnish a greater appreciation for the present, and inform the very future of design. This text provides the tools for designers to understand the differences across history and across the contemporary world and how to interpret history to complete their design projects successfully."--Publisher's website.

This chronologically arranged set of case studies looks at how interior design has constantly redefined itself as a manifestation of culture, from the eighteenth-century to the present day. The book looks at the amateur activities of female "home makers" in search of creative outlets and married couples seeking to modernize their homes as well as the contributions of early professional (female) "interior decorators," and later, (male) "interior designers." It also considers the more anonymous role of commercial enterprises, such as hairdressing salons, cruise ships or modern offices. Issues relating to interiority, gender, and the relationship of the public sphere are also considered opening up a new level of design historical enquiry.
