    This is mostly a series of biographies and professional pedigrees seemingly well researched but repetitive within paragraphs of the same subject ultimately written without much enthusiasm And while the righting of some very minor historical inaccuracies is always appreciated in any work of non fiction it didn't make for a compelling historiography These women and their contribution to the world of interior design in being lumped together to give the impression of substance is a disservice to them their work and to the future readers and figurative protégés The biggest mark against this book however is the fact that Adam Lewis and Rizzoli didn't see fit to describe in any small detail their creations I am grateful to the authors of the new individual biographical treatments that these women so deserve egPauline Metcalf's Syrie Maugham Staging Glamorous Interiors Continuing to update this niche is what will ultimately confer relevance on the designers Still the concept of this book is strong and it's what's earning the stars in my rating along with the photo reproductions which are of great uality but short supply It would be a treat to see this reworked by another author and interior design aficionado preferably a woman next time 'round

    Women in the late 19th and early 20th century invented the business of interior design This book gives a short biography and a history of accomplishments of a dozen or so women who are important in this field The book is lavishly illustrated I found it to be a little stuffy though it may have been the subject matter and not the book itself If you want to know how the wealthy lived read this book
