So I’m in the process of applying to a design school. I can’t decide if I want to major in Interior or Industrial Design. While I really love personal shopping and designing spaces… I’m drawn to the idea of designing furniture and accessories.

I also plan to minor in Sustainability. After talking with my advisor I was told that I can only be LEED certified in Interior Design.

Career wise - what degree can allow me to do the most?

any suggestions?

I know a good number of interior designers who do their own furniture, and there is crossover between the two fields especially here in Australia ( where the design industry is relatively small). If you are not interested in any sort of product design outside of furniture I would lean towards interior design.
