Furniture Designers

Overview

Furniture designers design and develop concepts for building furnishings like chairs, tables, and couches. They work closely with their clients to get a thorough understanding of what kind of product is needed.

Furniture designers may work for a company that specifically builds furniture or for a large design firm that is contracted by furniture manufacturers. Furniture designers spend most of their time in an office working on ideas but also spend time meeting with clients.
