The materials that engage our senses play an integral role in defining our interior spaces; understanding the unique characteristics of various materials is an important aspect of selecting and designing with them. In this survey course, students explore a variety of materials used in interior design, including fabrics, wall coverings, paints, wood, stone, metal, glass, laminates, solid surfacing, tile, carpet, resilient flooring and more. The course covers appropriate and creative uses of these materials in commercial and residential applications, in addition to code considerations, specification writing and identification of sources.

This course is held at the Westerly Education Center.
