Last month, the Residential Design Studio took a field trip to tour some of the showrooms housed in the Arlington Design Center. The design center is an excellent resource for designers and a more convenient location to take your clients than the Merchandise Mart if they need to “sit and see” the furniture you’re specifying.
The class took tours through the Design D’Vision, CAI Designs, Chicago Design Team, Kravet, and Bretag Floor Source showrooms. In addition to seeing the latest products, the class learned how to take advantage of the resources available, use a showroom, and how current legislation will impact our industry.
The Residential Design Studio is a studio level class intended to truly hone a student’s skills and prepares the student’s work for portfolio and getting hired. If you have questions about the class, talk to Shelly Mocchi, who teaches the class.
