If you're curious about what was hot in interior design in the old days - get a load of this dusty book on "The Art Of Interior Design Decoration" by Grace Wood (I love the name). It was published the same year of the Russian revolution, but is hardly inspired by anything close to upsetting, though some paragraphs strike me as more interesting than others, for example
"There is a psychic connection between the outline of furniture and the inline of man."
Yes, ponder this my friends. I myself have no idea what she's talking about.
"A man's library" according to Gracie.
