Career prospects of furniture designers

As people's requirements for the quality and appearance of furniture are increasing, furniture is no longer just a simple daily necessities. Individually designed furniture is becoming more and more popular. The rapid development of the furniture industry makes the profession of furniture designer heat up rapidly. Large demand promotes furniture design Chen Baoguang, deputy secretary general of the China National Furniture Association, said that the dual motivation of market demand and export earnings has promoted the rapid development of modern furniture production in my country. At present, many manufacturers' products have been exported to Europe and the United States, and my country has become an important manufacturing base for the world's furniture industry. However, high output value and low added value coexist in my country's furniture manufacturing industry. At present, most of the export products are produced through OEM, that is to say, few Chinese own brands are sold directly abroad. In addition, most domestic furniture companies have similar designs, lack of creativity, and mostly imitate. Chen Baoguang believes that the furniture industry has developed to its current scale and faced with fierce competition, the domestic market will start a price war, and the foreign market will have difficulty relying on the comparative advantage of low cost. The breakthrough point of the furniture industry lies in design. The entry of a large number of high-quality furniture design talents into furniture manufacturing enterprises is the key to the sustained and rapid development of the furniture industry. The talent structure has not formed an echelon. Although many companies have realized the importance of hiring designers, even a high salary may not be able to hire a satisfied designer. According to incomplete statistics, there are currently more than 30,000 furniture companies in China, but there are fewer than 3,000 designers. In other words, on average, there is only one designer for every 10 furniture companies. Not to mention the gap in the number of furniture designers, the level of the few designers is also very different. Mature designers such as 'very few. On the whole, the level of talents in the furniture design industry is limited, and a good 'echelon structure' has not been formed. Foreign designers come to grab their jobs. When talking about the design level of domestic designers, Shi Yan, manager of the planning department of Beijing Qumei Furniture Co., Ltd. believes that compared with foreign designers, most domestic designers are pursuing design concepts and individualization. And there is a certain gap in product innovation, which is the main reason why my country's furniture design is difficult to break through. Therefore, many domestic large-scale furniture manufacturing companies have hired foreign experts with high salaries. Regarding the current situation of foreign designers grabbing jobs, Shi Yan said that many companies hiring foreign talents are also a helpless move to make up for the lack of domestic outstanding designers. Weak design skills make it difficult to find jobs. Although the demand for talents in the furniture industry is very large, it is important for furniture designers to be able to express their design intentions smoothly to the care and manufacturing departments. The employment of talents is not optimistic. According to an unnamed person from the Beijing Furniture Association, the number of domestic organizations that train furniture design talents has been on the rise. At present, in addition to Beijing Forestry University, Northeast Forestry University and other forestry colleges that have opened furniture design majors, vocational colleges in the major furniture production provinces of Guangdong and Zhejiang are focusing on cultivating furniture designers, and many training institutions in the society have also opened related Training Courses. It can be said that the number of furniture design talents cultivated by all walks of life in the society has increased geometrically in the past two years. But at present, except for the good employment situation of a few college graduates, most people find it difficult to find a suitable job after studying furniture design. Analyzing the reasons, Chen Baoguang believes that, first of all, domestic furniture production companies are mainly small and medium-sized enterprises, and most companies do not have the concept of furniture design. He thinks that instead of hiring designers to design products with high salaries, it is better to use furniture in foreign furniture stores. The drawings are taken back to the factory for copy production, which can reduce costs. Secondly, many organizations often only focus on basic skills when educating trainees, and fail to explore the cultural heritage of furniture design. As a result, the furniture design talents trained can only draw but not design, and it is difficult to get a job.
