5.0 out of 5 stars All you wanted to know about hard finishes 24 Oct 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you're studying Interior Design, you learn about hard and soft finishes and where you can apply what. If you're a novice, you just want ideas on what can go where. This book caters for both. Lots of picture with examples of hard finish materials and applications for it. It doesn't exhaust all the advantages and disadvantages of each hard finish, nor does it mention them all... but it's a great book for understanding what can go where!

I was impressed with the scope of the book but I imagine as so many new products are being developed now how it can possibly keep up
4.0 out of 5 stars Materials-a directory for home design 8 April 2006
By aim - Published on Amazon.com
Wow - this is a great book, especially if you like contemporary spaces. Good general information and many pictures with creative use of materials and textures. As a teacher I assigned this book for a class - negative: only two students were able to get the book, so now I am hunting for a replacement...

There is a lot of good information, although it is very general. The photos are great for ideas of use of materials.
