This paper discusses the trajectory of interior design in Taiwan after World War II. This study reviews literatures and theories documented by former researchers and combines these theories with my own points of view. This study splits the influential factors into four categories: the “human” factors, “event” factors, “object” factors and “other” factors. This study employs a questionnaire survey as the principle method of this paper. The questionnaires were completed by Chairmen, Directors, Supervisors and members of the Association of Interior Designers of each county in Taiwan. This study attempts to understand the factors affecting the trajectory of interior design in Taiwan and their factor loadings by analyzing the common values, trends and phenomena of interior design as they can be observed in Taiwan after World War II. The outcomes indicate that the greatest factor is “object”, followed by “human” and “event”. The “human” factor is mostly regarding architects, while the “event” factor is mainly from interior, architecture, and space design books. The “other” factor, on the other hand, is generally about the changes in economic structure. The changes in lifestyle also reveal that changes in interior design are closely related to the lifestyles of a society.
