This was a collaborative design project with a fellow student.

As Interior Designers, we wanted to create furniture that would then define spaces and or time of day, whether this be breakfast time or bed time. Weekly events such as luncheons or community parties would give us opportunity to socialize and communicate to others our experience and change of pace from college students to island dwellers.
