She includes information and extensive examples from such major design styles as Gothic, Empire, Baroque, Neo-Classical, Victorian, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Hi-Tech, and Post-Modern. From florals to geometrics, overall patterns to plains, "The Style Sourcebook" caters to both traditional and modern tastes, offering designs created 200 years ago and those developed for the next century. Each of the 2,300 samples is accompanied by purchasing details listing company, design, pattern name/number, available colors, essential measurements, composition, and uses. Information on price and suitability is included with every sample. The book helps ensure that the tile selected is suitable for a particular floor or a fabric is strong enough to use as upholstery.
