Great design attracts buyers to consider a piece of furniture, but it is comfort, cost and durability that will make the sale.

Creating successful furniture pieces includes incorporation of robust designs, bold configurations, and outstanding performance including consideration of acceptable loads and advanced biomechanics, and well-functioning parts. Durability and design must go hand in hand when designing furniture for the consumer market.

Pinpointing potential weaknesses early in the design process gives designers the ability to improve a product well before it goes to market, where the reputation of the manufacturer is on the line. Virtual prototyping of new products can save manufacturers time and money while creating unique designs that will draw the attention of consumers. In every case, manufacturers can maintain high standards for function and form while testing durability of designs and materials efficiently and economically.
