Summary Organized decade by decade and, within each chapter, by type of interior space for easy reference, The Illustrated Room provides a brief social, artistic, and economic overview of each period, giving readers a deeper understanding of the forces that shaped such major movements and influences as Art Nouveau, Arts and Crafts, Wiener Werkstatte and De Stijl, Art Deco and the Bauhaus, Streamline, Utility, International Style, Eclecticism, Moderne, and Contemporary. Featuring a special section on the renderer's art in which many of today's leading perspectivists give their views on commissions, creativity, major influences, signature design styles, media, work habits, and the future of rendering in a computer age, The Illustrated Room is an invaluable reference for interior designers as well as architects, illustrators, restoration and renovation professionals, and design students
The Illustrated Room is an unsurpassed visual and historical record of residential, commercial, and institutional interior design as it is presented in the work of this century's most imaginative illustrators - from the florid Art Nouveau renderings in the early 1900s to the world of contemporary masters. The first book to include the finest work from North America, Europe, and the Far East, this extensively researched volume covers - through images and commentary - the many visual styles and media used for an extraordinary range of project types. Hundreds of full-color and black-and-white drawings, room paintings, sketches, and electronically generated renderings depict residential rooms, offices, furniture, hotels, lobbies, restaurants, retail stores, churches, recreational facilities, schools, libraries, banks, museums, stage and movie sets, industrial facilities, and specialty interiors
