The History of Homeware
Interior design can be seen throughout the ages. Home decoration can be traced back to the cavemen, when cave dwellers painted pictures on their walls. Prior to the 18th Century, only the noble and very rich could create a beautifully decorated home, with hand-made furniture and ornaments being seen as a status symbol. The Ancient Romans enjoyed displaying their wealth via their homes, with custom-built furniture to accommodate their needs.
Interior design only really became popular in the 18th Century early modern period when luxury items became more affordable for ordinary people. The 19th Century saw the notion of mass production, which allowed more people to decorate their home’s interiors. The post-war years saw a distinct renaissance in interior design, with an emphasis on modern rather than traditional styles.
