Interior Textiles
Fabrics, Application and Historic Style
by Karla J. Nielson

Interior Textiles: Fabrics, Application and Historic Style covers both the technical and aesthetic considerations of using textiles in interior design.

It gives expert guidance to the process of textile specifications, selection, installation and maintenance, as well as an understanding of the properties of fabric types and a historical context of styles. Sustainable design and code issues are also considered. More than 500 illustrations and photographs elucidate key ideas.

Interior Textiles is divided into three main parts:

  • Fabrics: The interior design textile industry and marketplace. A study of fibers, yarns, constructions, and finishes. Codes and "green" design
  • Applications: Textile specifications and coordination of upholstery and wall coverings, window treatments, linens and accessories, and rugs and carpeting
  • Period Style: Oriental styles, Renaissance and Formal styles, Medieval, Colonial, Country and Provence styles, Regional and Ethnic styles, and Modern styles
