"Ethnic by Design" responds to the challenge of borrowing and adapting the decorative styles of cultures from around the world to enrich the interiors of today. It examines how folk artefacts and designs can be adapted within any home, whether a large counrty house or a small urban apartment. Fourteen main themes explore the decorative approaches of areas that have had a particularly strong influence on design world wide - Cowboy, Native American, Mexican, Nordic, Celtic, Tyrolean, Mediterranean, Eastern European, North African, Tribal, Gold Coast, Japanese, Indian and Asiatic. The traditions and the background of each style is considered with examples of contemporary European and American interpretations. This text presents a collection of internationally available artefacts, suggesting ways in which the can be used in today's homes.
