With the revival of traditional architecture in the first half of the twentieth century came a lively reassessment of interior decoration. Lead by progressive women who recognized the potential for interiors that at once honored the past and addressed the sensibilities and demands of contemporary life, house decoration was revolutionized. New standards for room layout, lighting, color, and furniture arrangement were invented by these masterful designers, and their works remain today as the foundation of traditional interior design. Acanthus Press 20th Century Decorators series  focuses on the great designers of the 20th century—men and women whose work changed the way we live. The books illustrate each individual designer's professional trajectory in a chronological presentation, from the youthful, enthusiastic statements of their early work to the influential expressions of style of their mature years .
