The choice of materials is critical to the success of an interior. This book examines every aspect of the the use of materials in interior design, from initial concept and selection to visual representation and practical application.

Following a brief introduction, the first five sections offer historical context and detailed guidance on selection, application, representation, communication, and sources, while the sixth and final section features case studies by international interior designers.

The book includes useful step-by-step sequences, information on properties and sustainability, and a list of resources, online archives and sample libraries. It is an invaluable practical and inspirational guide for interior design students.
