Most decorating books focus on one designer; the rest focus on one period, one trend, one room. This book, for the first time, has the big picture: ALL the names everybody must know from the entire 100-year history of interior design. Each designer is profiled and illustrated with three to four photographs of their best work; what we can learn from them - and how they changed decorating forever - is clearly highlighted to catch the eye. And to put it all together, a final chapter presents the 10 most important rooms of the past 100 years.
