Winners

A community partnership between interior design students at High Point University and several local businesses brings creative concepts to a nearby hotel while giving students a real-world experience.

HPU interior design students recently worked as a team to design prototypes for the HPU rooms inside the JH Adams Inn in High Point. They presented their design idea boards to hostel management on September 23 for feedback.

JH Adams Inn will ultimately select two winning team design proposals. The designs will be implemented in rooms often filled with HPU families visiting the city. These rooms will be designed and installed according to the team’s vision.

Design students selected new furniture, bedding, upholstery, lighting, accessories and more for the bedrooms through access to local design suppliers, including Norwalk and Woodbridge furniture; Currey & Co. lighting; and Kravet and Culp fabrics for mattress covers, bedding, window treatments and upholstery. Additionally, Culp will also select two winning teams to have their work displayed in the lobby of the JH Adams Inn and the Culp Showroom at High Point Market.
