Designer’s Guide to Decorative Accessories introduces the reader to the stylistic development of pottery, glassware, lighting, textiles, mirrors, clocks, and wall coverings while discussing both function and aesthetics and their integration into interior design.   Decorative accessories from the Neolithic age to the 21st century are presented with insight into the technological advances that made them possible and the social, economic, and political factors that influenced their design.  Comparisons are made between decorative objects from different periods emphasizing the progression of an idea or a stylistic concept throughout history.   Descriptions of period room settings provide the context of how these decorative accessories complement the architecture and interior design.  This book provides a handy resource for those interested in decorative arts, whether students, designers, or collectors.
