I just wrote my first guest post for Alluminare.com!
It features the Kona chair designed by Emily Carpenter of SCAD for Project UDesign.* Student designers created personal interpretations of the classic wing back chair which incorporated soy-based BiOH Polyol foam and eco-friendly Ultrasuede fabric into their designs. Six finalists have been chosen, and now it is up to the public to vote on their favorite design. The winner’s chair will be produced by Century Furniture and added to their permanent line-up. Then the winner gets to sit back (on their designed chair I would imagine!) and wait for the royalties to come in! How amazing is that?? So after you read my guest post ; ) be sure to go over to Facebook to vote for your favorite. I already did (good luck, Emily!)
And don’t forget to take a look at the bright ideas at Alluminare.com where designers are creating custom fabrics, lighting, pillows and more. I have actually been working on designing some patterns of my own as
I mentioned this summer. Who knows? Maybe
you will see some of my fabric designs
featured in the not-to-distant future!
*The fine print ... Project UDesign is sponsored by BiOH Polyols in partnership with Savannah College of Art & Design, Century Furniture and Ultrasuede
