?The Handbook of Interior Design captures some of the best thinking available in the field. We are reminded of the value of design in shaping the human experience and the power we hold as designers to positively impact society.? Lisa Waxman, Florida State University ?In this important collection of work gathered and edited by Thompson and Blossom, I am struck by three critical themes relative to the profession of Interior Design: the importance of research at both the academic and practice levels which guides and shapes our creative outcomes; the richness, diversity and complexity of this ?thing? we call Interior Design; and the time-honored importance of people connected to place. Each of these three things lives on its own as subject matter, but together form the foundation of our profession. For anyone interested in provoking their knowledge of Interior Design in the first part of the 21st century, this is the go-to resource.? Eileen Jones, Perkins + Will
