Abstract

This contribution concentrates on the catchword ‘Art in the House’ which was formulated most prominently by the Austrian writer Jacob von Falke but which also dominated the discussions on the decoration and the design of interiors in England, the USA and France and elsewhere in the West. It led to a new view of the interior which is now considered a work of art, or ‘design’, in its own right, which amounts to more than the sum of all the individual items of décor. This work of art was also meant to serve more directly the comfort of its users, who would include not just the rich, as before, but potentially everybody.
