Save A Sample! 2015
Every year, Save A Sample! creates a second life for unused brochures, fabrics and finish cards. Over the years, thousands of pounds of materials have been donated by some of the country’s busiest design firms. The materials are delivered to local design schools with the help of local furniture dealers. As a result, talented students have a much richer set of resources to choose from during the year.
Save A Sample! has helped students in Boston, Chicago, New York City, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Los Angeles and San Francisco! This year, COP’s A+D Representative, Melisa Donato, collected 42 boxes of samples of fabric, tile, stone, wallcovering and carpet. CBT Architects had the largest donation of 23 boxes of samples. The boxes were brought to the Art Institute at Lesley College and to Mount Ida College.Design Lab, Events
