Furniture Design Competition

The Bienenstock Furniture Library’s passion for education has enabled the Scholarship Program to reach hundreds of students and encourage education within the design and furniture industries. It is our desire to promote the best scholarship competition each year. The Bienenstock Furniture Design Competition will be suspended for the 2019-2020 school year in order to make changes and improvements to this category within our Scholarship Program. We will implement this category back in to the program for the 2020-2021 school year. With a goal of having a competition that best suits the needs of the students and schools, while obtaining quality entries, we are sure that our updated furniture competition will be a success. Thank you for your patience while we dedicate time to making this the best competition possible. We look forward to your participation in 2021.
