The ASFD’s updated website includes new features to benefit members.
HIGH POINT — The American Society of Furniture Designers has updated its website in conjunction with its new initiative, Touching Lives by Design.
Earlier this year, ASFD also unveiled a new logo.
The updated member-centric website at www.asfd.com expands on the existing content to add Designpedia, a glossary of style and design terms used in American furnishings, a monthly trends article and a designer spotlight.
"We desire to provide to the ASFD membership, the industry and consumers a source for topical styling references, major trend movements and influential designers' works we think are consequential for home furnishings to touch individual lives," said ASFD President John Conrad.
"We believe a collaborative approach from our members to provide current content to the website will focus and showcase the significant forces the society offers to have major impact on today's environments. It is only through multiple viewpoints that can we provide relevant elements to help guide our industry and consumers to make choices that enhance their lives for a long time," he added.
In addition to furniture designers, ASFD membership is available to manufacturers, industry professionals, graphic designers and design students.
