From Palaces to Pre-fabs sets out to restore the reputation of such women working in what was the largely male-dominated world of interior design. 

Although how we furnished our homes in the latter part of the 20th century was largely influenced by two men - Terence Conran of Habitat and Ingvar Kamprad of IKEA - a number of women attempted, in their various ways, to influence our taste when it came to how we lived.

Learn about the women (often also suffragettes) from the Victorian/Edwardian era who designed and sold furniture, and how the world wars threw together new professional groups of women, empowering others to 'do it themselves'.
