Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Furniture Design and Construction for the Interior Designer satisfies the need in the interior design field for a source that teaches the aesthetic as well as the construction of residential furniture. Beginning chapters cover the design process as it relates to furniture design, basic materials, hardware, joinery and finishes. Because interior designers organize and create livable spaces, later chapters are organized room by room, showing how pieces are constructed for a particular space. Understanding the basic construction of furniture greatly increases the success of the design. An interior designer should be confident in their design work as well as have an understanding of what is involved with the construction of their pieces and that's what Natale and this book attempt to guide them toward.Features:-- Introduces major furniture styles that influenced furniture in the United States and how styles have changed through the years-- Emphasizes custom furniture design and fabrications geared toward residential design-- Uses isometric and exploded drawings to explain how wood furniture is joined together and explains the strengths and uses of each joint-- Step-by-step instructions and illustrations throughout cover how to engineer different types of furniture-- Multiple projects, assignments, and quizzes at the end of each chapter-- Heavily illustrated with drafting examples, sketches, renderings and photographs of furniture-- Instructor's Guide provides suggestions for planning the course and using the text in the classroom
