For more than a decade, the Furniture4Kids Design Challenge has brought out the competitive and creative spirits of architecture and design professionals throughout the Dallas and Fort Worth area.
This year we are taking a fresh approach to Furniture4Kids through a new logo, new partners, and a new look! As always, this event will bring together the design, development, and construction industry in support of an incredible organization making an impact on North Texas area children, Dallas CASA.
Teams will be challenged to transform identical benches into functional works of art. A panel of judges will decide our winners and all entries will be auctioned off with proceeds benefitting Dallas CASA. This year, all entries will be available for bid though an online auction leading up to the event.
Best of Furniture4Kids – This is the top award in the design challenge and represents the very best of the designs all around.
People’s Choice – 100% of the vote is based on the Furniture4Kids attendees. Each party guest will be given (1) ticket at the door to cast a vote for their favorite design.
Best Thematic Design – Every design is based on the theme of “UP”. This award will be presented to the submission with the best execution of the design theme.
Craftsmanship Award – In years past, there have been exceptional designs reflecting the highest level of detail and craftmanship. Whether your specialty is wood-working, upholstery, artistic expression, etc., this is your chance to shine!
