    Description

    Furniture designers are responsible for designing and creating different types of furniture from a basic concept or idea. They design using sketchpads, computer software, or a combination of both. Furniture designers often create original prototypes from their initial design and are usually involved in selecting fabrics, colors, and the woods, metals, or plastics used to create furniture pieces. These creatives can either produce designs for commercial furniture manufacturers or work with individuals to create custom pieces that often emphasize form over function. Furniture designers usually work traditional business hours.

    Responsibilities

    Furniture designers have a set of common tasks that they are expected  to complete as part of their job. Based on our review of job listings,  these core tasks are:
    • Plan and Improve Designs
    • Furniture  designers are tasked with researching and planning a variety of  furniture design styles. They may have to discuss designs with clients  who desire custom orders or meet with manufacturers. They may also have  to improve upon furniture designs that are already being manufactured  with the use of computer-aided design and hard prototypes.
    • Choose Materials
    • The  process of selecting suitable materials – namely woods, plastics,  textiles, and metals – is also a common task assigned to furniture  designers. Due to their input on the design process, they are the best  person to choose the optimal materials for a particular design.
    • Consult with Team Members
    • Unless  a furniture designer is self-employed and works on a small scale, they  will have to consult with other craftsmen or production members, such as  marketing staff or design engineers.
    • Evaluate Issues
    • Furniture  designers must consider all kinds of issues, such as industry trends,  purchasing, manufacturing techniques, and organizing schedules based on  availability of project resources.
    • Follow Design Trends
    • Attending  industry-related trainings – such as webinars, seminars, and workshops –  is essential to staying up to date, as is attending various furnishing  shows and exhibitions.
