Textile and interior history buffs rejoice! We'll admit to being slightly overwhelmed when we first discovered John Hopper's aptly named The Textile Blog several months back. Since that time, he has continued to post almost daily missives, not only about textile and surface design, but craft and decor movements as well...

John's writing is filled with detailed histories and fascinating stories that touch on everything from obscure 19th Century design exhibitions to the various uses of 1970s vinyl floor tile.

In addition to his blog, John also maintains a massive, well organized library of images via Flickr. Of particular interest is his "Interior Design" collection, sorted by decade.
