The Elements of a Home reveals the fascinating stories behind more than 60 everyday household objects and furnishings. 

Brimming with amusing anecdotes and absorbing trivia, this captivating collection is a treasure trove of curiosities. With tales from the kitchen, the bedroom, and every room in between, these pages expose how napkins got their start as lumps of dough in ancient Greece, why forks were once seen as immoral tools of the devil, and how Plato devised one of the earliest alarm clocks using rocks and water - plus so much more.

As a design historian and former managing editor of Design*Sponge, author Amy Azzarito has crafted an engaging, whimsical history of the household objects you've never thought twice about. The result is a fascinating book filled with tidbits from a wide range of cultures and places about the history of domestic luxury.

This delightful book is filled with lovely illustrations and would make a perfect housewarming or wedding gift or for anyone who adores interior design, trivia, history and unique facts.
