Design as an art and also as a utility will be showcased this week at the Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin. Two students from the University of Wisconsin-Madison will be teaching other degree seekers and museum patrons exactly what goes into creating beautiful and useful furniture, according to the Wausua Daily Herald.

Paul J. Lorenz, 27, and Yu-Nung Lin, 26, will demonstrate how to use computer programs and detailed instructions to create furniture. They will exhibit a hands-on approach to engage the students.

The pair will showcase their unique abilities in an attempt to keep other future designers open-minded and creative.

"My own (design) philosophy is that things should be extremely specific," said Lorenz to the Herald. "People should be able to work with designers and architects to find absolutely customized solutions."

There are many future interior designers out there and a good amount of programs to choose from. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are more than 150 schools that offer interior design degree programs that have been approved by The Council for Interior Design Accreditation.
