If you can't visualize the Louis XIVth style, or if the significance of William Morris is lost on you, this hefty volume can serve as an introduction to the nuts and bolts of great design, a chronological reference, and a coffee table book with color photographs on nearly every page. A dazzling array of interiors from medieval times to the present is featured here, including Thomas Jefferson's dignified Monticello, the Empress Joséphine's gold-bedecked bedroom, and Victor Horta's impossibly beautiful Art Nouveau residence. Highlighting such architects and designers as Filippo Brunelleschi, Mies Van der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles Eames, and the Bauhaus School, this book also focuses on the cross-pollination of design with the other visual arts.
