For courses in Interior Design

Materials and Components of Interior Architecture, Eighth Edition, offers a unique look at interior design,fully covering the exciting breadth of nonstructural materials available to interior designers. With an eye on the environment, it instills a firm understanding of the products, properties, and uses of all materials—from floors, walls, and ceilings to installation and recycling. Going beyond paint and carpet, it explores over 27 different floorings and devotes separate chapters to kitchens and baths. Filled with the latest information from manufacturers, suppliers, and associations, it provides students with the knowledge to creatively engage the “nuts and bolts” of interior design—both in terms of structure and style.
