Project description

FurnitureLab wants to greatly expand the number and range of table designs that we offer in our catalog. Since there's no limit to what can make a great design, we wanted to see what great new designs are out there! We are looking for designs that are geometrical patterns of one sort or another- think fabric patterns. Many of the designs we have received are fairly mechanical geometric patterns. We are looking for repeating patterns that have a more organic feel to them. Where you don't see the repeating cell so easily. We would like to see some that are inspired by nature as well. Too many of these look "machine made". Learn more: http://www.furniturelab.com/Next100

  • Hello, Intriguing contest! But I'm just wondering, should patterns be submitted here on DesignContest or through furniturelab.com? Or are these two completely different contests altogether? Thanks.
    • Both. And you can submit as many as you want!

    • Great, thanks! I'll be submitting some designs over the next few days

  • hi ,CH i submited my first design #10 your feedback is imoprtant for me thanks

  • Designers please create original art, do not use stock in this project. The ch will be adding these designs to a catelog. Please be original and create your own work
  • This is a really interesting design. It's geometric, but very organic in its presentation. It reminds me of a quilt or flying over fields in the midwest
    • Thank-you. That's a great analogy, it definitely mimics the fields of the midwest

  • I like this concept. It would be great to see it scaled down (zoomed out) and maybe some other motifs like this. I like that there's a pattern and then there's this smaller element that can be colorized.
  • Check out the highest scoring design. What I like about this one is that it responds to my last comment about making the pattern and repeat less obvious. This looks like a pattern one might see on a fabric or wall paper. It uses geometric shapes and has a natural, organic arrangement.
  • Hello, Has the first round been extended? Am I still able to submit patterns through your website? Thanks

  • This is interesting. I like the use of thin lines, but it's missing something that makes it work as a pattern. I can't quite out my finger on it...
    • Thanks. I had a similar idea but felt it would be too close to entries 92 & 93. Maybe if it was a little more organized, it would possibly work? But I guess any changes would be moot since the deadline for submission was yesterday. It is a repeating pattern if that's what the concern is.

  • This is good, but would like to see more!
  • I like the design ideas here, but think it needs more earthy colors and something in the background.
  • I like the layering and the feel here, but the repeat is too strong.
  • Try making patterns that are more free-flowing. This is too regular
  • This pattern is a bit too strong and regular. We're looking for things that are more subtle and subdued.

      Thank you very much for your feedback, I'll do my best.

  • This is a cool image, but we're looking for patterns that can repeat over the surface. Something that is interesting, but not so interesting that it draws too much attention to itself
  • Hi CH, If you like the style of this #142 I can make you a lot more
  • I like the look, but this needs another dimension, or mor depth. It's a little stark
  • I like some of the elements here like the circles. Maybe they could be used for a patten. When they're combined with the triangles it looks too much like swiss cheese, which is delicious, but not great for a laminate pattern.
    • Ah ok, I shall try something different without the triangles. It's funny you mention that because I was going for that cheese wheel/swiss cheese look and thought it might work for cafeteria countertops possibly. But I will try it without the triangles.

  • I personally love this design, but it's too wild for what we're looking for. Maybe it can be toned down with the use of color and / or texture. We are looking for things that are more subtle.
    • I am very glad you love it. I submitted #130 & #129 that are subtle. I guess here will ne only one winner, would you choose the winner before 07.04 so we can use our other designs on the site?

  • Shells are too specific. This would be good for a specific project, but not so much for our new patterns. Keep trying!
