At the beginning of the twenty-first century, there was a definite rise in the number of interior practitioners and architects tackling interior projects, whether building adaptation or true interior design. The popularity of interior design education, at both the undergraduate and postgraduate level, has never been higher. Despite this, there is still very little legislation or definition around this subject, and few publications of any academic substance that investigate the subject’s issues, processes, and theories.
Trends in interior design come into play in every generation. Some of them will remain popular for some time as part of a style or have been declared a personal style, while others go when the next generation of designers of the majority. Some of those who fall from grace often a few generations later with a new name, and enriched with new colors and new art. Today’s design trends lean heavily toward comfort and ease of function due to our very busy lifestyles. Consumers demand that manufacturers of just about everything continually create an easier, faster way of performing one task or another.
