Materials Lab

Exploring materials, finishings, and furnishings are an integral part of the design process and essential for creating healthy, innovative, and purposeful interiors.

The School of Interior Design maintains a Materials Lab is available to all students and faculty in the College of Art & Design. The lab provides a controlled area to research materials, finishes, and furnishings. Students and faculty can browse a full range of samples and document specifications, find product information from vendor websites, request samples, and utilize a light booth to evaluate materials and finishes under varying light sources. Samples and literature are updated throughout the year.
