“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.”
