The last half of the twentieth century saw the emergence, evolution and consolidation of a distinct interior design practice and profession. This book aims to create an informed awareness of the significant movements, individuals, the cultural, social and economic contexts that have shaped the practice of contemporary interior design.
Those entering and operating in the profession deserve greater awareness and understanding of the very recent traditions they inherit. The author has been involved in interior design education for the last thirty years and believes that there is a need for a detailed specialist, contemporary historical analysis.
