Description
Since the mid-20th century we have taken notions of domestic style, comfort, and atmosphere for granted, designing our rooms to achieve the right mood or personality. Yet this seemingly modern approach to décor and the language for expressing it emerged throughout the 19th century, as a combination of cultural, commercial, and artistic factors allowed architects, designers, and clients to aspire to the idea of the "poetic home." Illustrated with 396 photos, catalogue pages, and drawings—120 of them in color—this book examines Western domestic interior from around 1800 to the mid-1890s, illuminating the design of the interior as a whole rather than particular types of furnishing or fashionable styles.

"Throughout, paintings, woodcuts and frontispieces of fantastic opulence and detail leap off the page.... [The book] offers a new angle on a fascinating period."—House & Garden
