Romans in bit advance level they started combining beauty and comfort in home interiors this reflected their wealth and status. TO beautify interior space both the Greeks and Romans used mosaic floors, vases and wall paintings. After Dark Age Europeans once again introduced color and ornamentation to their home interiors.
Again in 15th and 16th century French people focused on art and beauty in interior designing. In this century architects created furniture with fine wood, spaces are created with elaborate decorative elements such as marble floors, inlaid woodworks, paintings examples are royal places, villas, and chapels of Europe. In the 18th century, Europeans started the Rococo style, means showing interest for Asian porcelain, flower designs, and furniture inlaid with elegant materials like pearls and tortoise shells. The late 18th-century Neoclassical look came into the picture, an offshoot of the classical design of ancient Rome, made heavy use of bronze, silk, satin, and velvet in interiors. Like this, so many trends came and went but 20th century gave new challenges for interior designers as they need to design a space with aesthetic purposes and also for functionality.
