Call For Entries Featured

Take a Seat.  Just what you're looking for.

Seaport World Trade Center – 200 Seaport Blvd – Boston,MA – Feb 20-22, 2015

Call for Entries Deadline - January 12, 2015



The Furniture Project was started in 2013 and seeks to provide both makers and the general public with new ways to interact with furniture.  Each year, we make changes that reflect both our observations and feedback from exhibitors and patrons of the show. This year, we have gone with a category chosen specifically by past contributors: Seating.  Each year, makers request some kind of chair project.  In the past, we have been wary of the added complications in such a unique form.  This year, however, we feel prepared to show them in their best light.  Read through this Call for Entries below, then follow the links at the bottom for the Rules and Eligibility and our Inspiration Board.  Feel free to contact us with any questions at This email address is being protected from spambots.

"Take a Seat" Interpretive Category - The objective of the Interpretive Category is to enable the public to view, in one area, the our makers' creativity and ingenuity within a single genre.  Critical to this category is a patrons ability to actually sit down.  Makers should be present, or leave explicit instructions, to allow visitors to try their furniture throughout the weekend.

 

Interpretive Category Constraints:

  • The piece must server the primary purpose of seating.
  • All materials are acceptable.
  • All finishes are acceptable, including unfinished (that does not mean "not completed").

Submission Deadline The project submitted must be built must be built specifically for The Furniture Project 2015. Projects must be built by January 12, 2015 – a progress photo must accompany the entry. For more details view the Rules and Eligibility.

Having trouble getting started?  Browse our Inspiration Board for ideas.

AWARDS will be given for Best in Show along with other awards highlighting fine craftsmanship. To download and print this pamphlet, click here.

    Are there any Interpretive Category size limitations around minimum or maximum width/height?
