Create great interior designs with a new understanding of textiles Learn to use interior textiles to set a mood, establish a theme, and create an ambiance. From soft and subtle to bold and dynamic, Interior Textiles gives you the technical knowledge and skills plus the aesthetic ability needed to fully leverage the potentials of interior textiles. You will be introduced to textile specifications, testing, selection, installation, and maintenance, as well as the unique properties of individual fabrics. Moreover, you discover sustainable design techniques to design "green." The texts three parts give you everything you need to create great interior designs for contract and residential interiors: Part I: Fabrics begins with an overview of the textiles industry. Next are detailed discussions of fibers and yarns, including fabric construction, conversion, coloring, and finishing. The final chapter features an introduction to decorative and support fabrics, including proper names, weights, and applications. Part II: Applications guides you to the best choices for specific applications. You learn the hows and whys of textiles for upholstered furniture, slipcovers, wall coverings, window treatments, linens and accessories, broadloom carpeting, and hand- and machine-made rugs. Part III: Period Styles explores the use of color, pattern, texture, and style to evoke different periods in history. Richly illustrated, this part is divided into chapters covering: Oriental; Formal Traditional; Medieval, Colonial, and Country; Regional and Thematic; and Modern styles. Many chapters list relevant associations and organizations that can be used as additional resources. A companion Web site at www.wiley.com/go/interiortextiles includes a wealth of supplemental information, including glossaries of terms, historical timelines, and invaluable advice on textile maintenance. Whether you are a student or a professional interior designer, Interior Textiles opensyour eyes to a wealth of possibilities and gives you the skills to make these possibilities happen.
