"Styles: Compendium of Interior," written by Francois Baudot.
Not only are the pictures and history excellent but the fact that it was more informative than my History of Interiors textbook at school left me awe-struck. This 432 page book breaks down the history of interior decor from the Medieval era to the twentieth century. This great piece of literature can help place that odd chair sitting in the garage from great Aunt Petunia. Also, it's great for themed decorating--displaying over 250 illustrations to reference. So after using this brilliant book, you'll have knowledge that will knock your neighbors socks off!
