Furniture matters to Interior Designers in the same way that books matter to librarians. It’s important because interior design is concerned with the design of spaces, and what makes those spaces is furniture.
Furniture plays an important role in the space planning phase of interior design. By definition, Space Planning is the allocation and division of interior space for a client’s needs and activities using furniture. How to place the furniture is an essential part of space planning, where maximum usage is considered in the arrangement of furniture.
