Past & Present: 24 Favorite Moments in Decorative Arts History and 24 Modern DIY Projects Inspired by Them [Paperback] : Amy Azzarito (Author), Julia Rothman (Illustrator)

From the Palladian columns of our government buildings to Victorian-style taxidermy and terrariums, highlights from past decorative eras frequently resurface in our modern lives. In Past & Present, Design*Sponge managing editor Amy Azzarito presents 24 pairs of essays and craft projects that explore the connection between decorative arts history and present-day design trends. From a Wedgwood-inspired headboard made using molding from the hardware store to an art nouveau– style tree-branch chandelier, the projects celebrate their roots yet fit perfectly into our contemporary living spaces. The projects have been contributed by some of today’s best-known arbiters of design, such as Todd Oldham, Jonathan Adler, and Grace Bonney, adding extra allure to an already fascinating topic.

Amy Azzarito is the managing editor of the popular blog Design*Sponge. Formerly the digital producer at the New York Public Library, she graduated from Parsons/Cooper-Hewitt with a master’s degree in the history of decorative arts and design. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
