The bestselling approach to interior design–improved and updated in a new edition

Francis D.K. Ching’s integrated approach to interior design is now updated and expanded in this new Second Edition. A functional and beautifully illustrated work, Interior Design Illustrated offers a thorough introduction to interior design, addressing the architectural requirements of interior spaces and the details of furnishing and interior finishes.

Beginning designers will find this Second Edition invaluable for its concise and accessible presentation of important concepts, and experienced practitioners will find it insightful and practical for its coverage of the relationship between building structures and interior spaces. The broad range of rich illustrations communicates visual information and ploughs fertile ground for creative ideas and inspiration.

  • How functional needs can be translated into design decisions
  • The basic elements and principles of visual design as they are applied to interior design
  • The functional, aesthetic, and expressive roles design elements can play in the development of three-dimensional space
  • The systems necessary for environmental health, safety, comfort, and convenience that must be integrated into a building’s structure and the design of its interior space
