We were recently sent a fascinating infographic on the history of interior design in the White House. Naturally we felt that we had to share it with you! We hope you enjoy this very different type of article…


The infographic shows the tremendous changes the White House has undergone through the decades, embracing new interior design styles while letting presidents sit next to antique furniture.

It is common practice that presidents are allocated a renovation budget to enable them to add his mark, so to speak, to their temporary home. Many choose a new design for the rug in this famous room during their time in the Oval Office. The rug itself is one subtle method of letting the world have a visual representation behind the ideologies, reflecting the era and personality of each president while they are in office.
