The Book

Foundations of Interior Design, 3rd edition, offers a thorough update to this introduction to the creative, technical and business aspects of the interior design profession. By surveying design history, the elements and principles of design, professional practice, and more, Susan Slotkis provides a practical and comprehensive overview. This new edition provides a wide range of examples of design in different styles and applications. Projects and applications designed by both individuals and as collaborative efforts locally and globally are featured, from rural America to modern Dubai. The contribution of many interior designers, those who work independently or as part of large firms is demonstrated in the choice of illustrations and case studies. They represent a balance of small and large, simple and complex, and residential and contract from throughout the United States and abroad.
