Mia Knight of the Anderson University School of Interior Design was named the Spring 2024 winner for the Kravet Design of Distinction Competition.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.

For this prestigious competition, students submit interior design projects to be considered for the award.

Professor Sarah Owens assigned Kravet Motif Project 2 in the ID254 course, “Textiles, Materials, Finishes and Details,” for  students to create a textile print and 3D printed sample of a motif to be used as a pattern on a textile. The textile pattern is then digitally applied to a Kravet chair and digitally rendered. Partnering with Kravet, the School of Interior Design faculty send the top five projects to the corporate office for Kravet in New York City as submission to the Kravet Design of Distinction competition. Industry professionals in New York judge the five submissions and the winning design is given an award for the top placement.

The Anderson University School of Interior Design has a long-standing relationship with Kravet through this competition as well as a yearly visit to their facility here in Anderson. Students are introduced to the “To the Trade” industry and are shown how the distribution side of the design industry works.

Established in 1918, Kravet Inc. is the industry leader in the trade home furnishings industry and offers fabrics, trims, wallcovering, furniture and accessories to the design trade.

The Anderson University School of Interior Design is one of only nine such programs to be offered in a Christian institution of higher learning and has graduates working as professional interior designers across the nation and internationally.
