Interior design, as a relatively young discipline within the academic world of design, has historically been interpreted as an extension of other fine arts. Narratives exist, but they all too often treat interior design as a function of architecture or display rather than experience. An independent interior design theory is virtually nonexistent. Professor Lois Weinthal envisions a future where interior design is treated with parity to architecture and industrial design, a future with a new interior.

Lois Weinthal is Chair of the School of Interior Design at Ryerson University, Canada. She is the editor of Toward a New Interior: An Anthology of Interior Design Theory (2011), and co-editor of After Taste: Expanded Practice in Interior Design (2011). Additional publications include 'Interior-scapes' in Feminist Practices (2011), 'Bridging the Threshold of Interior and Exterior: An Interview with Petra Blaisse' in AD Architectural Design (2008) and 'House Lab' in the JAE Journal of Architectural Education (2006).
