A quirky book for anyone who is curious about the stories behind the objects they use every day. Contains amusing anecdotes and absorbing trivia about over 60 everyday household objects and furnishings. The Elements of a Home exposes how napkins began as lumps of dough in ancient Greece, why forks were once believe to be immoral tools of the devil, and how Plato devised one of the earliest alarm clocks using rocks and water. It includes facts and information from all over the world. A charming gift for anyone who loves history, design, or decor. 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.
