The development of the domestic interior is a history of consumption and taste. In this book, for the first time, this story is set against the cultural and industrial changes taking place in the western world since the seventeenth century. Unlike almost all previous histories, this book does not deal exclusively with the grand houses of the aristocracy: Steven Parissien's masterly text concentrates rather on the homes of the merchants and middle classes, who have been the first to take advantage of new technologies to furnish and decorate their homes. Fully illustrated with contemporary plates from catalogs and books, as well as paintings and photography, this beautiful book traces a constantly absorbing and often surprising story, as it took place all over Western Europe and North America. Ideal for all students of and enthusiasts for the domestic interior and period settings. Steven Parissien's strongly narrative text explains not simply what happened, but why.

For several years this has been the standard text on nineteenth-century British furniture, which continues to be the focus of an extraordinary growth of interest in the United States and throughout Europe.This exhaustive survey of a rich and rewarding chapter in the history of the decorative arts contains an astonishing range of photographs and drawings: more than six hundred illustrations, many of them in color, offer a uniquely comprehensive look at nineteenth-century furniture from the Gothic Revival to Art Nouveau. Every major designer is represented, including William Morris, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Christopher Dresser, and the choice of pictures includes a wealth of little-known furniture from private collections, much of which has never before been illustrated.A cheerful text enhanced by lavish picture layouts. -- The New York Times

"Judith Neiswander explains that during these years liberal values - individuality, cosmopolitanism, scientific rationalism, the progressive role of the elite and the emancipation of women - informed advice about the desirable appearance of the home. In the period preceding the First World War, these values changed dramatically: advice on decoration became more nationalistic in tone and a new goal was set for the interior - "to raise the British child by the British hearth." Neiswander traces this evolving discourse within the context of current writing on interior decoration, writing that it is much more detached from social and political issues of the day."--BOOK JACKET.

From Aesthetes in Africa to the cultural history of the teapot, this collection addresses the topic of eclectic relationships in Victorian decorative art. Rethinking the Interior, c. 1867-1896 argues that no firm demarcation exists between Aestheticism and Arts and Crafts, the two movements examined here. The volume addresses the complex and temporary character of interiors, and challenges the identification of nineteenth-century interiors as exclusively female or family spaces.
