Today is the final day for submissions for the annual Porada Design Award. The goal was to use solid wood to create a functional, contemporary table for one of Porada’s collections, whether it be coffee table, side table, dining table, or night table.
The interior design department at Florida State University had some amazing entries from their students; read on to see what our South Florida friends designed for the Porada Design Award 2013.
ORGANICA, design by Melanie Murata. Inspired by the winding and twisting shape of the Olive tree native to the Mediterranean coastal areas.
GLACIER, design by Julie Marhee. Much like an iceberg, the exquisiteness of the Glacier Table lies under the surface; the tables base, composed of Natural Ash and Canaletta Walnut woods, will be visible below a tempered glass top.
DI COMO LOW coffee table, design by Katie Hart. Inspired by the natural features of Lake Como, Italy. The smooth lake is held by the contours of the surrounding mountains, much like the glass top on this table.
SILHOUETTE coffee table, by Amanda Krueger. The form embodies the movement and rhythm of marble veining while asymmetrical balance keeps the overall piece from appearing too heavy or overbearing.
Good luck to the FSU interior design team!
