Martin publishes history of interior design profession

Caren Martin (interior design) is the author of Interior Design From Practice To Profession: A History of the Profession (2007). Published by the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), the 56-page booklet covers the definition of interior design today, a historical view of the development of interior design as a profession, and interior design in the 21st century.

ASID writes, "This publication traces the steps that interior design is taking to become a profession and compares them with architecture and interior decoration. It is a 'must read' for anyone interested in interior design legislation, education and the public’s perception of interior design practice."
