Charitable Chair

The Charitable Chair event incorporates accreditation standards, design curriculum and public service.

As part of their final projects, students from five interior design courses participate by designing and enlisting the help of professionals to refurbish a chair of historical significance. Chairs are auctioned at a public event. Proceeds from this year's auction will be divided between the GOAL Foundation Youth Program and the WSU Interior Design Program.

Call for chairs

The interior design program has issued a call for historic chairs for the Charitable Chair event.
