Think of all the furnishings and décor objects people depend on in homes, at work, and in hotels and restaurants. Every piece of furniture, upholstery, fabrics, wall coverings, decorative accessories, tabletop items, flooring, wall treatments, rugs, lighting, lamps, window treatments, cabinetry, countertops that is selected and placed in environments to enjoy and use begins life in the furnishings and décor industry. So where do these objects originate? Who creates them? We are the industry that “designs the products that designers choose and use,” and we are involved in every aspect of the life of those products.
These fashionable and functional objects are constantly changing, and innovations are continuously happening. Product development and design, trends and forecasting, manufacturing, merchandising, visual display, and buying and selling are the core of this multi-billion dollar industry.

The increasing global demand for home furnishings products means great career opportunities for our graduates.
