Within the preservation community, little is done to preserve the interiors of historic buildings. While many individuals are concerned with preserving our historic resources, they fail to look beyond the obvious—the exteriors of buildings. If efforts are not made to preserve interiors as well as exteriors, then many important resources will be lost. This thesis serves as a catalog of how to recreate and preserve an historic dining room of the early twentieth century in the Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco styles.
