Written from the viewpoint of the working designer, this textbook describes each material's characteristics and teaches students how to evaluate, select and specify materials.
Interior Design Materials and Specifications is a book and CD-Rom combination that covers the selection, care, and code compliance associated with materials for interiors. It addresses the topic of material and trade resources form the viewpoint of the working designer, describing each material's characteristics alongside information about specification and project management. Excerises related to the selection, specification, and installation process give students the opportunity to select materials, specify, and practice project management tools related to an adaptive reuse scenario. This simulated project requires students to apply their knowledge in a "real-world" format, paying close attention to the reasons behind each material choice.

Pat Guthrie, author of The Architect's Portable Handbook, now turns his attention to interior design. Like its predecessor, the book is organized in CSI MasterFormat, modified for the interior design profession. It covers initial planning and estimating through design and construction/installation. Included are materials and specifications checklists, quick references to applicable codes and standards, design data, and typical details. Examples show applications of techniques and procedures. This invaluable reference, like all titles in the Portable Handbook series, provides "the 20% of information needed 80% of the time."
The first handbook for interior designers on the properties of material used in constructing and finishing buildings: stone, marble, wood, brick, tile, concrete, plaster and drywall, glass, paint, plastics, wallcoverings, flooring, and carpets.

"The original edition of this book, Color, Space, and Style, was published by Rockport Publishers in 2007"--Preliminary page.
Guides students and professionals through the interior design process, from planning to execution, in an updated edition that includes new information on project management, building systems and codes, and lighting.
Organized by types of materials and applications, this guidehelps designers successfully address material evaluation andselection of interior components. Engagingly written, highlydetailed, and helpfully illustrated with more than 550 colorillustrations, Materials for Interior Environments is acomprehensive guide to everything a designer needs to know aboutthe materials available for interiors—from aestheticqualities to manufacturing and fabrication, applications,installation and maintenance, and specifications for materials usedin commercial and residential applications.
The National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) certifies interior designers in the United States and Canada with a 13 1/2-hour, closed-book exam, offered every April and October. The exam is divided into three sections, each of which may be taken individually.The Interior Design Reference Manual is the designer's primary source for exam preparation. This manual provides an overview of the exam topics and practice problems, with solutions.Updated for the new NCIDQ exam format, the second edition of the Interior Design Reference Manual is the most efficient and thorough review for the interior design exam. Along with an explanatory review of exam topics, the Manual provides 233 exam-like practice problems (with solutions) and test-taking strategy. The book is enhanced by illustrations, tables and charts of data, and a detailed index.
For the past decade,Specifications for Commercial Interiorshas been the definitive guide to required information on regulations and liabilities, materials performance criteria, and specification writing for interior systems. Today more than ever, every professional involved in the design of commercial and institutional interior space needs to know how to evaluate materials, avoid liability, and comply with current regulations. This new edition has been completely revised. Every section has been updated, and new chapters have been added on paneling, life cycle costing, data management, and fire performance testing. The book also incorporates the 1989 specification data issued by the Construction Specifications Institute. Used for a required course in the College of Architecture at Arizona State University, this book consists of 18 chapters—well documented with charts, diagrams, and checklists—which are organized into three parts. The first part defines professional and product liability and outlines the latest regulations and standards. Three separate chapters are devoted to fire hazards and their effect on interior finishes, upholstery, and furniture specification. Part 2 discusses interior systems and materials: rugs and carpets, resilient and hard-surface flooring, interior wall finishes, paneling, window systems, and commercial furniture. Life cycle costing is covered, as are the requirements for barrier-free public interiors. Part 3 establishes guidelines for coordinating drawings, schedules, and specification documents. The latest technological developments are referred to throughout the text, and up-to-date terminology is defined in glossaries at the ends of chapters. The book is an invaluable reference for interior designers, architects, and students of these professions.
"Taking into account the dramatic advances being made in materials and technologies, this innovative book on interior architecture offers a synergistic approach to the field, while exposing readers to many exciting nonstructural materials available to today's designers."--Cover.
This comprehensive, practical guide explores how contemporary furniture is used within interior design to define a space, create division and enclosure, and alter or redefine circulation. Initial chapters illustrate the different contexts in which furniture is used, from the office and domestic interiors to retail and exhibition space; look at types of furniture, whether off-the-shelf or bespoke; and explore the new vogue for recycling and vintage. Later chapters examine both traditional materials such as wood and the more unusual such as stone and glass, while also explaining new methods of manufacture – such as Computer Numerical Controlled and Selected Laser Sintering. The final chapter looks at how a design is developed, the site surveyed, prototypes made and specifications and schedules drawn up. Furniture for Interior Design is a detailed, highly illustrated guide to specifying and placing existing manufactured furniture, but also shows the reader how to design, detail, and commission batch-produced furniture or one-off, site-specific pieces.
