About this course:

This course is an intensive study of the history of decorative arts with an emphasis on how Asian and Islamic styles influenced Baroque and Rococo, which in turn influenced Art Nouveau. The course will emphasize practical applications of these historical concepts in contemporary interior design. This course is separate from and not dependent on Contemporary Applications of Historical Design, Part II.

This course is designed to give students a deep understanding of both the academic and practical aspects of historical decorative arts. Students will not only gain mastery of vocabulary and an understanding of styles, but also learn about the social forces and technological developments that shaped the history of design. Students will learn about actual artisanal techniques and materials. Other practical applications that the course will teach include a) incorporating antiques into contemporary interiors; b) using reproductions of past styles; and c) creating modern adaptations from earlier periods and styles, all of these being integral skills of any working interior designer in today’s design field.
