Contents include: Floor tiles by Mawe & Co and Wallpaper by Eastlake adapted from sixteenth century Italian designs. Black and white illustrations of lighting, furniture, ornaments, fabric design and much more.

Eastlake was himself a pioneer in the design of "art furniture", based on sixteenth and early seventeenth century models, and he illustrates many of his own designs for furniture and wallpaper, as well as providing decisive guidance on how to furnish houses "with a sense of the picturesque that shall not interfere with modern notions of comfort and convenience".
