The Domestic Scene reveals Niedecken as a forward-looking designer influenced by European Art Nouveau and Secessionist design as well as by the Arts and Crafts Movement. Cheryl Robertson focuses on three examples of Niedecken’s commissions between 1907 and 1917 and an article by Niedecken himself (reprinted in this volume) to explore the evolving relationship between architect, interior designer, and client in the first quarter of the twentieth century.

This expanded second edition includes updated photography, additional color images, and an essay by John C. Eastberg that deepens our understanding of Niedecken’s career by presenting his lesser-known work in the context of Milwaukee’s artistic and social history. Niedecken worked not only in the Prairie style but also in the Colonial and Renaissance Revival modes, and these works illustrate his versatility as a designer and entrepreneur.
