Presidential Interior Design A History Of The White House

Presidential Interior Design A History Of The White House

The White House has undergone tremendous change throughout the decades, embracing new interior design styles while pairing them with antique furniture that has been there since the very beginning. As one can see on the infographic below, courtesy of The Rug Seller, rugs serve far more of a purpose than functional floor coverings that give comfort underfoot. They're also used to make a statement and what better place to make a visual statement than the White House?

It is common practice that each President is allocated their own renovation budget to enable him to add his mark on the home's interior design aspects. Along with their First Lady, many choose a new design for the Oval Office's rug. The rug itself is one subtle method of letting the world have a visual representation behind their ideologies, reflecting the era and personality of each President while they are in office. The following infographic shows some of the different rug styles seen inside the White House, along with a timeline of White House renovations and a sampling of some of the historical treasures found inside.
