Summary

Fabric for the Designed Interior, Second Edition, is a comprehensive text for students and professionals, addressing both residential and commercial interiors. The book begins by placing fabric in a historic context, examining its connection to the growth of civilization. Later chapters take a practical approach to provide readers with the tools they need for successfully specifying fabric, dealing with environmental and safety concerns, understanding fabric and carpet-care issues, working with bids and contracts, and learning strategies for navigating showrooms and fabricating facilities. Leading designers, fabric manufacturers, and suppliers weigh in with their experiences, giving readers a clear idea of real-world expectations. This new edition is updated with expanded coverage on sustainable fabrics, more robust and clear instructions on costing, an appendix of historic and decorative architectural styles, and a revised art program featuring contemporary styles.
