  • Overview: This fundamental course will take designers through the design and development process for furniture, taking into consideration frame, suspensions, foam and design intent. The journey continues with a look at fabrics from fiber to weaving to print. It cumulates as we explore the two coming together - the creation of a cover set and the upholstery process. We discover how characteristics of fabric behave on certian designs and how to thoughtfully weave one's way through the selection process. The training ends with visual celebrations of when the combinations work and when they do not.
