Since the publication of Edward Said's groundbreaking work Orientalism 35 years ago, numerous studies have explored the West's fraught and enduring fascination with the so-called Orient. Focusing their critical attention on the literary and pictorial arts, these studies have, to date, largely neglected the world of interior design. Oriental Interiors is the first book to fully explore the formation and perception of eastern-inspired interiors from an orientalist perspective. Orientalist spaces in the West have taken numerous forms since the 18th century to the present day, and the fifteen chapters in this collection reflect that diversity, dealing with subjects as varied and engaging as harems, Turkish baths on RMS Titanic, Parisian bachelor quarters, potted palms, and contemporary yoga studios. It explores how furnishings, surface treatments, ornament and music, for example, are deployed to enhance the exoticism and pleasures of oriental spaces, looking across a range of international locations. Organized into three parts, each introduced by the editor, the essays are grouped by theme to highlight critical paths into the intersections between orientalist studies, spatial theory, design studies, visual culture and gender studies, making this essential reading for students and researchers alike.

Design And Agency

Design and Agency brings together leading international design scholars and practitioners to address the concept of agency in relation to objects, organisations and people. The authors set out to expand the scope of design history and practice, avoiding the heroic narratives of a typical modernist approach. They consider both how the agents of design construct and express their identities and subjectivities through practice, while also investigating the distinctive contribution of design in the construction of individual identity and subjectivity. Individual chapters explore notions of agency in a range of design disciplines and historical periods, including the agency of women in effecting changes to the design of offices and working practices; the role of Jeffrey Lindsay and Buckminster Fuller in developing the design of a geodesic dome; Le Corbusier's 'Casa Curutchet'; a re-consideration of the gendered historiography of the 'Jugendstil' movement, and Bruce Mau's design exhibitions. Taken together, the essays in Design and Agency provide a much-needed response to the traditional texts which dominate design history. With a broad chronological span from 1900 to the present, and an equally broad understanding of the term 'design', it expands how we view the discipline, and shows how design itself can be an agent for social, cultural and economic change.

A fully illustrated examination of a central figure in the history of interior design and the Prairie Style George Mann Niedecken (1878–1945) was a major designer in the Prairie Style, known primarily for his collaborations with Frank Lloyd Wright to furnish the interiors of several houses including the Susan Lawrence Dana House in Springfield, Illinois; the Avery Coonley House in Riverside, Illinois; and the Frederick Robie House in Chicago. Niedecken ran a successful Milwaukee business that helped revolutionize design in the upper Midwest. He called himself an “interior architect” and created domestic environments decorated with geometric abstractions, conventionalized natural motifs, muted colors with iridescent accents, and innovative furniture ensembles. His work is preserved at the Milwaukee Art Museum in the Prairie Archives, containing colored presentation renderings, working drawings, and business records from the Niedecken-Walbridge Company. The Domestic Scene reveals Niedecken as a forward-looking designer influenced by European Art Nouveau and Secessionist design as well as by the Arts and Crafts Movement. Cheryl Robertson focuses on three examples of Niedecken's commissions between 1907 and 1917 and an article by Niedecken himself (reprinted in this volume) to explore the evolving relationship between architect, interior designer, and client in the first quarter of the twentieth century. This expanded second edition includes updated photography, additional color images, and an essay by John C. Eastberg that deepens our understanding of Niedecken's career by presenting his lesser-known work in the context of Milwaukee's artistic and social history. Niedecken worked not only in the Prairie style but also in the Colonial and Renaissance Revival modes, and these works illustrate his versatility as a designer and entrepreneur.

Taking National Trust properties as its central focus, this book examines three interlocking themes to examine the role of historic textiles. It looks at houses with preserved contents together with the reasons for individual families choosing this lifestyle, the role of the National Trust as both guardian and interpreter of these houses and their collections, and finally, the influence of textiles to contribute to the appearance of interiors, and their physical attributes that carry historical resonances of the past.

Folk art is the art of the tradesman. Sometimes called naive art, the paintings produced by the folk artists might have decorated a home, announced the name of a pub or a shop, illustrated a prime stock animal for breeding, or dramatically have announced the arrival of a ship in port - all in the age before print and photograph changed the world. Often painted in oils or carved in wood, the tradesman's art was bold, distinctive and literal. It was also charming, and many find in it a character and authenticity that can be missing from the work of trained artists. Now, more than ever before, the work of the artisan artists is respected as a worthy tradition in British art, commanding high prices and acting as inspiration for countless contemporary artists.
