Críticas:

"Comprehensive and crystal clear." "Author Steven Semes provides a comprehensive study of the architectural conception and treatment of rooms designed in the classical tradition... Semes' hearty text strives to give readers a keen appreciation for the variety of the classical interior... [R]eading The Architecture of the Classical Interior is the armchair equivalent to taking a master class in design." "A practicing architect shows how the elements that constitute the classical interior can be composed into rooms satisfying both aesthetic and practical criteria." "Should remain on the shelves of bookstores and personal libraries for as long as the art of gracious living remains... He has gathered together a great deal of widely scattered information and assembled it all into one slender, graceful and elegant volume. The organization of the book is lucid and useful... his book offers a useful index, an extensive bibliography and an equally extensive reading list... It was indeed Semes' good fortune to be granted the opportunity to write an unprecedented book on an important subject." "[A] seminal book and will most certainly serve as a springboard to even greater vigor in the growth of the knowledge and practice of traditional architecture, both from the standpoint of sheer volume and from the more significant standpoint of quality." -- D.V. Marcantonio "Exploring the rich array of expressions, styles, materials and treatments that have come to define classical interiors, this book reveals an architectural model that is not limited in its artistic possibilities but rather free to assume any numbers of its identities. Each chapter is dedicated to a particular principle of the classical interior exploring themes that have shaped it throughout history. Illustrated with photographs, original drawings and plans of historic interiors, uncovering a rich language unique to classical design."
