Furniture matters to interior designers in the same way that books matter to librarians. It’s important because interior design is concerned with the design of spaces, and what makes those spaces is furniture. In this lesson, we’ll go over the various aspects of this ‘making.’
Furniture is an industrial or craft-based design used to support human activities. Interior designers use existing or new, built-in, custom designed, or ready-made furniture. Every piece of furniture is made the with user’s needs in mind. Function determines what a piece of furniture should do, like sleeping (beds), eating (tables), or seating (chairs).
