"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.

Design History and Time

These moods and feelings importantly resist and replace the tacit and assumed chrononormative reading of design historical sources. Indeed, as historians, we might do well to ask: How does the history of (interior) design feel?

Design, History and Time reflects on the nature of time in relation to design, in both past and contemporary contexts. In contrast to a traditional design historical approach which emphasises schools and movements, this volume addresses time as a continuum and considers the importance of temporality for design practice and history. Contributors address how designers, design historians and design thinkers might respond to the global challenges of time, the rhythms of work, and the increasing speed of life and communication between different communities. They consider how the past informs the present and the future in terms of design; the importance of time-based design practices such as rapid prototyping and slow design, time in relation to memory and forgetting, and artefacts such as the archive for which time is key, and ponder the design of time itself. Showcasing the work of fifteen design scholars from a range of international contexts, the book provides an essential text for thinking about changing attitudes to the temporal.

The Handbook of Interior Architecture and Design offers a compelling collection of original essays that seek to examine the shifting role of interior architecture and interior design, and their importance and meaning within the contemporary world. Interior architecture and interior design are disciplines that span a complexity of ideas, ranging from human behaviour and anthropology to history and the technology of the future. Approaches to designing the interior are in a constant state of flux, reflecting and adapting to the changing systems of history, culture and politics. It is this process that allows interior design to be used as evidence for identifying patterns of consumption, gender, identity and social issues. The Handbook of Interior Architecture and Design provides a pioneering overview of the ideas and arrangements within the two disciplines that make them such important platforms from which to study the way humans interact with the space around them. Covering a wide range of thought and research, the book enables the reader to investigate fully the changing face of interior architecture and interior design, while offering questions about their future trajectory.
