The furniture industry has gained great benefit from the 3D rendering, photo-realistic process. Producing virtual, high quality images digitally provide clear visualization of abstract concepts, unlimited means of customization, and efficient revision of particular elements of a model. The flexibility of this technology accelerates the approval process while enhancing visual communication with precise and accurate renderings.
We asked our design team to put together a list of the top 10 reasons we use 3D renderings and how it helps the design and manufacturing process.

Hotel design has inexorably shifted to highlighting the look and feel of the community in which the property is located. This has change the way in which projects are conceived and executed.
It’s no longer about fungible design that simply checks off a series of boxes. Rather, it’s about understanding the cultural, historical and visual cues of the individual community; then creating a visual and functional aesthetic highlighting those elements unique to that neighborhood’s character.
We spoke to Lois Goodell, principal, director of interior design, with CBT Architects and Ronnie Bray, founding partner of Bray Whaler, to see how their roles have transformed due to changing design demands.
