Interior styles have changed significantly since the humble mud huts of the ancient Egyptians. Decoration for the Egyptians included simple furniture with embellishments of animal skins, murals, sculptures, and painted vases. The Roman and Greek civilizations developed this further with importance on combining beauty and comfort.
Fast forward to 2020 and beauty and comfort are still key considerations when it comes to interior design. A booming industry, interior design is all about how we experience spaces and allows us to showcase our personality while creating comfortable, functional spaces that are beautiful to be in.
Designers draw upon the signature statements of past generations and as with any past trend, they are cyclical or in some cases are still relevant year after year.
Here, we provide a snapshot of what characterised interior design through the years, complemented by a selection of fabrics from our range that embody each period.
