Students who are working toward an associate's, bachelor's or master's degree in interior design, and want to gain experience outside the classroom, can benefit from attending annual design events. By visiting these showrooms, individuals can meet and network with interior design specialists while learning about the most up-to-date furnishing design trends.

San Diego's Little Italy neighborhood recently hosted the Modul and Toke Integrated Design Centers. The two centers' showcases included kitchen decor and custom-made furniture displays created by six interior designers.

The event also featured new kitchen appliances, different stone countertops, wall papers and wall art. In addition to special events, both design centers regularly show unique furnishings made for the kitchen, office and other rooms in the home.

Students who complete postsecondary programs may be qualified for high-paying jobs, as the annual wages of interior designers ranged from $27,230 to $82,750 in 2008, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Future professionals can also practice their craft in several facilities such as airport terminals, hospitals, hotels, schools, restaurants, shopping malls and theaters.
