Abstract

First published in Journal of Design History, No. 1 Vol. 16. January 2003, pp.15-33, the essay considers the work of female interior designers, Rhoda and Agnes Garrett and offers an interpretation of their book ‘Suggestions for House Decoration’. Covering primary texts (such as the writings of designers and design reformers) and secondary texts (in the form of key works of design history), the reader provides an essential resource for understanding the history of design, the development of the discipline, and contemporary issues in design history and practice.
