The nine interior design students who won the Virginia Jackson awards, which is sponsored by Educational Foundation of the International Textile Market Association, were recently announced. The top three will be able to attend and display their designs at the Suites at Market Square in the first week of June, according to Furniture Today.
There were 63 students from 11 different universities who submitted their designs, which were judged based on their originality and ability to be replicated.
"A big part of the mission of ITMA's Educational Foundation is to encourage creative individuals to enter the home furnishings textile field, and we are always thrilled by the excellence of the entries we received," Catherine Morsell, executive director of the foundation, told the news source.
These students may be interested in what the job market will look like for this profession in the upcoming years. Occupations in interior designers are expected to increase by 19 percent between 2008 and 2018, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
