China’s Top Interior Designers Attend HPU for Summer Workshop

Posted on May 20, 2014.

HIGH POINT, N.C., May 20, 2014 – Nineteen of China’s top interior designers recently spent a month studying American design from professors at High Point University.

The designers came from major cities all over China to learn about American design and to stimulate their creativity. While they primarily visited to study interior, the designers have different backgrounds in fields such as real estate and furniture selling.

“They have come to America to experience American culture, to see the real American life and the interior of American houses and learn about the American interior design,” says Judy Danley, instructor of Chinese and advisor for international students at HPU.

The designers are taking classes at HPU through an interior design training agent from China, who organized the tour and brought them to High Point.

In addition to attending workshops on campus, the designers toured various mansions, historic houses and museums throughout North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia to learn more about residential design, the history of architecture, lighting techniques and more.

HPU first hosted designers from China in May of 2013. Because the program was so successful, the university hosted another workshop this year.
