from CGTrader

Can you imagine your life without a soft and comfortable bed to lay after an extremely intensive day? What place would you choose to eat at if there were no chairs, sofas and tables invented?

It’s a fortune – we are living in the ages, which bring us countless number of extraordinary and unique furniture designs. Thus, we decided to expand the supply even more and run CG Furniture challenge! We believe it’s the best time to give the opportunity for furniture designers to compete with each other for the recognition and marvelous prizes.

You are free to design any kind and any style of furniture. Medieval style chair or futuristic couch – everything works. Surprise us and surpass yourself! Don’t forget that one model could be only for one challenge and should be uploaded during the challenge period.

Our amazing sponsors are ready to give the best they can to motivate you even more! This time we have partnered up with Ranch Computing, SketchList and Landscape Architects Network.

Don’t lay in bed, design one instead giving your best shot!
